Classy Cards N Such - Colors of Fall

Here is a card I made for the Classy Cards "Colors of Fall" challenge this week.    I love fall colors.

I started with a white card base.   The next layer was cut using th Mandarin Curious Metallic paper.   I layer it with white card stock that I embossed with the  Anna Griffin Matelasse Embossing folder. 

I used glossy card stock and the Poppy Stamps Fluffy Feather die to cut the three feathers.   I used various inks to achieve the colors of fall.  I swiped the colors across the glossy feathers.  I chose this technique because the feathers reminded me of colorful leaves. 
I popped the feathers/leaves up on the white embossed paper with Joy Foam Pads Large.    I added the striped ribbon to give the appearance of tying the feathers/leaves together.

I stamped the sentiment using Sweet N' Sassy -Keep in Touch, Too  stamp set..  I used the Mandarin Curious  Metallic paper and the A2 Divine Eloquence dies to layer behind the sentiment.

For the final step to my card I added orange and  silver rhinestones.

I am happy you came by today and I hope you will join us for the challenge.
