Hi, Diane with you today to hopefully inspire YOU
to join our challenge this week which is Feeling Fall-ish!

I put this card together first by using a
Sizzix Susan's Garden Laurel Wreath embossing folder.
There are numerous embossing folders in the store to choose from.

I embossed it on  Champaign Neenah Pearlized Metallic card stock.
So very pretty with an elegant shimmer.

The pumpkin was cut with Memory Box Stitched Pumpkins,
using the largest of the three.
The card stock I used for the pumpkin  is Cryogen Curious Metallic,
giving the pumpkin itself a bit of shimmer.

The tiny flowers I cut using the Impression Obsession Hydrangea Set.
Each little flower was colored with Pan Pastels Flower Coloring Kit.
The colors from the kit I used are Orange and Red Iron Oxide.
I also used the  Paper Blossoms Tool Kit and
the Paper Blossoms Craft Molding Mat to form my flowers.
A suggestion if purchasing the Pan Pastels,
a good idea is to also purchase the PanPastel Lids.
These keep you colors nice and tidy and safe.

For the leaves I used an Impression Obsession Small Flower die set.
The branches are Memory Box Meadowbird Branch.

To finish I added a last snippet I had of orange ribbon
and a sentiment I had on hand.

Thank you for visiting with me today!
