Autumn Card

It's Monday, time to get our selves back into the weekly routine, our Monday's are pretty crazy around here.  Yesterday was a very gloomy and wet day, rained all day but we are supposed to have a nice sunny clear day today, I really hope so!!!!  My Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps card for today is this "Autumn" themed card, used their "Leaf Flourish" stamp to create the flourish border, kept the colors very neutral and played making some flowers using different dies and punches.  

Stamps; Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps (Autumn Is a Second Spring, Leaf Flourish)
Inks; StazOn (Timber Brown), Distress Ink (walnut stain, antique linen), Cat's Eye (Yellow Cadmium, Blush Rose)
Paper; Bazzill Cardstock, Patterned paper
Other; Spellbinders Labels Four, Perfect Pearls (Heirloom Gold, Perfect Bronze), Cuttlebug flower dies & scalloped circle, Quickutz leaf die, ribbon, hand died dew drops

Cut a piece of patterned paper and ink edges.  Cut a piece of cream cardstock, stamp the leaf flourish with brown StazOn to make a frame, ink edges with antique linen distress ink, distress edges with distressing tool.  Stamp "Autumn is a second Spring" sentiment on cream cardstock, cut & emboss with label four die, ink with distress ink, adhere with pop dots.  Make flowers with the Cuttlebug dies, die cut the leaves with the Quickutz die, ink and adhere as pictured.  Mix some perfect pearls with a bit of water and paint over leaves and flowers for an extra sheen, add some ribbon and the dew drops.
