Warm Wishes for Fall

I love Fall with the cooler temps & changing leaves.  The evergreens in Oregon combined with the leaves makes for gorgeous scenery! That was my inspiration for this card which I'm entering in the SSS Flickr Challenge #30 Fallin' For Fall & Inkspirational Word Prompt-Glow.  The colors of changing leaves were sponged onto a small panel using Distress Inks ripe persimmon, spiced marmalade, dried marigold & frayed burlap.  
Then I sprayed it with Tattered Angels Irridescent Gold & glued on the little SSS die cut trees.  Three strands of twine were braided & attached across the bottom of the panel before mounting it to the card front with foam tape.  The sentiment from SSS Warm Wishes was stamped in Distress Ink vintage photo.  I finished off with little bronze square stickers across the top.  Think this will go to a friend for Thanksgiving.  Thanks so much for stopping by.

  5. I never would have thought to add a braid to one of my cards. My daughter would love to do that. This is such a pretty card. I agree that the colorful fall trees mixed in with the evergreens is a sight to behold.

  9. Seems like we get more colorful sunsets in the fall than any other time of year, and your panel captures those colors beautifully.
