The Mixed Media Card Challenge!

It's time for another challenge with The Mixed Media Card Challenges!  We are going with the theme of Autumn Colors and an optional element of Metal or leaves and we have a sponsor this month:

Prize: $15 gift certificate

Here is what I came up with:

So I used Metal Leaves!  The metal is from our sponsor Add A Little Dazzle!  Go check it out great thin colored metal sheets.  I cut the leaves out using the Tim Holtz Tattered Leaves die.  I then embossed it using the Swiss Dots Embossing folder and then colored them with Distress Paints.

My background was created using various stencils and background stamps by Unity Stamp Co.  Then at the top of that layer I used light modeling paste and punchanella for some great texture.

Thanks for stopping by!
