Thank you fall card



My friend and I had a lovely lunch today and she treated so I came right home and made her this card.

The front base is embossed using a Sizzix TH embossing folder. I inked with ColorBox Burnt Sienna. Followed the sketch at Card Patterns and added the zig zag ribbon to go along with the Alphabet Challenge blog.
At Crafty Creations they wanted to see red brown and green and For Fun Challenge also wanted to see red brown and cream which certainly went with the Fall Challenge at Crazy4Challenge. I tied it all together with the All Sorts Bingo game challenge and the genre of Thank you and other challenge aspects (embossing, metal, Cricut cut (my rectangles from Wild Card and anything else) can be found at Paper Craft Star.
The twig/leave stamp was stamped in versamark and I used my new Perfect Pearls I got at Die Cuts R Us. I had to buy the Mini Misters today and tried my hand at the new technique - love it!
Added pearls I also got from DCRU.
Oh the stamps and sentiment are from a retired SU set.
