With all the cool weather, the leaves are starting to change color. Today I used the Cheery Lynn Fall Leaf Doily for the background for the sunflower created with the Susan's Garden Sunflower dies. To shape the flower I used the Susan's Garden Tool Kit and colored the petals with the Susan's Garden Pan Pastels. I used two very old JustRite stamps (from the Autumn Blessing Set) for the bronze embossed sentiment and pumpkins. To color the Fall Leave Doily I sponged on a variety of Distress Inks.
On the inside of the card I added the Cheery Lynn "Fall Leaf Mesh Border". It was also colored by sponging on Distress inks. I wanted to give the leaves a little dimension so die cut a second border, colored the leaves, and cut them off the border and mounted them with a thin dimensional tape. I did not stamp a sentiment inside yet because I'm not sure who this card will be sent to.
