Retro Rubber Challenge #76

Hello and Welcome!

This Post is for:
Retro Rubber Challenge #76, Anything Goes!!
 I am excited to have been invited to be a 
guest designer for this challenge!
I decided to go with a Thanksgiving card
since we are so close to the holiday
and, it is the theme of the set I
decided to use.

This sweet set is from Close to my Heart.
It's from their 2015 Holiday catty. I love the
sentiment script which I heat embossed in copper.
The leaves are whimsical looking and I
stamped them as if they were floating and falling
off trees. I then fussy cut the entire front layer
for a dimensional look. I added a few extra
leaves for again  more layers.

Stamps: Close to my Heart - Thankful Heart Holiday
Paper: Vanilla CS
Ink: Crushed Curry, Pumpkin Pie, Cherry Cobbler
Copper Embossing Powder
Copper Metallic Sequins

Come and join us for the
Anything Goes Challenge at
Retro Rubber.  Can't wait to see
what you all make!!
