Fall Colors

I decided to participate in the Belli Challenge this week where the theme is Fall or Halloween. And I used Kazan's Sketch #35 from 2 Sketches 4 You. If you get a chance, head on over to both of those blogs - they are offering some fantastic prizes this week!

Here is the sketch:
And here is my entry:

This card actually came together pretty quickly. I cut all of the images on my Cricut - the leaves are from the Doodletype cartridge, and the tree is from Stretch Your Imagination.

I embossed the background using the Cuttlebug Leafy Branch Embossing Folder. I printed the sentiment on my computer using Bradley Hand ITC font.

I used some foam stickers to mount the leaves for some added dimension. Finally I put some little gems in the tree, because I just gotta have bling!

Thanks for Looking!

Cardstick: Bazzill Basics and DCWV
