Colors of Fall and Burlap

I am excited to be posting the first card that I created for the Art Neko Blog.  I used the Fall Images A329.

I started out by stamping the acorns with Versa Mark and embossed them with gold embossing powder.  I stamped my leaves onto Glossy card stock,  then took some distress ink and drug them over the leaves.  I fussy cut the acorns and leaves,  I then assembled my card.  I arranged the acorns over the burlap ribbon.  Once I decided where I wanted to place the acorns, I added some gold cording behind them.  The final step was adhering the leaves to the embossed panel.

I appreciate you stopping by today and I hope you enjoyed my card.
