Fall Challenge

Happy November 1st!!
Being the first day of the month a new challenge starts at
with the theme being 'FALL'.
Anything fall, even fall colors.

I used a creamy 110# card stock base.
Using TH Distress Oxide Inks,
I inked up a glossy card stock.
was die cut from a pretty metallic paper,
then adhered to the glossy/inked paper.

I die cut two Poppystamps Sylvan Sprig dies,
one from a green scrap and one from a peachy scrap.
A flower from my stash was added to that.
I know, I know I should of handmade my own flower, 
but this one was so perfect for the card I just couldn't resist!

I stamped a sentiment using a SU Holiday Best stamp,
Then die cut with
using one of the smaller ovals in the set.
