Golden Wreath for Thanksgiving


Haven't gotten any cards made for a few days, so thought I'd share a card I made last month (10/19) for the SSS Flickr challenge.  I gold embossed the leaves from SSS Sketch Ranunculus stamped in a wreath & sponged the die cut circle with Distress Inks bundled sage, iced spruce & a little antique linen. The berries & sentiment from the same set was stamped in iced spruce.  
I used a small brush to add gold Wink of Stella mixed with water to the leaves--so gorgeous in person!  The circle card was sponged with iced spruce & the image circle was mounted with foam. Almost time to get my Thanksgiving cards in the mail. Boy is this year flying by!  I'm entering CropStop. Thanks so much for taking time to stop by.
