Autumn Birthday

I am entering this card for the following challenges in October.

Daring Cardmakers   

Get Funky!

Kathy's Waffle Sketch File

The background paper is this month's freebie from Anice at Get Funky !.
The paper was cut to cover an A6 size card base. The ribbon effect was created using layered strips of paper from a DCWV papers stack in brown and cream textured card. Using my Cricut, I cut 3 x 2'' and 3 x 1" ovals from orange cardstock to make the pumpkins.
The ovals were distressed with Ranger Distress and Versacolor inks and then layered to make the pumkin shape.The leaves were cut with a Sizzix die. The card was finished off with three green gems and the sentiment stamped in Versacolor ink and clear embossed. Unfortunately the Happy Birthday embossing doesn't show up too well in this photo.

 Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to leave me your comment. I love hearing from you.


Materials used:
Ranger Distress Ink in Pumice Stone
Versacolor Ink in  Brown 54
DCWV Latte matstack textured paper
Sizzix -Tim Holtz- Regal Crest cutting die.
Card base and gems from my stash
