The Ton-September Mood Board Challenge

🍁Autumn cards🍁

I am SO ready for cooler temperatures! I saw this mood board on The Ton Stamps Challenge Blog and it gave me all the feels!!! The beautiful colors stood out to me initially and then I zeroed in on the cute fox card on the top row. Something about chocolate-colored card stock that I think looks so rich. So here is my interpretation: 
I used several supplies from The Ton (listed and linked below). I stamped and heat embossed the floral border cling background stamp once on a brown card stock and again on a white sheet of 80 lb. Neenah solar white card (both A2 size).
I colored the white image with my ziggy zig zigs incorporating colors from the mood board. I then cut those images out and adhered them with liquid glue to my brown panel. Next I formed my sentiment from a couple different stamp sets, trimmed the panel down about 1/8 of an inch on all sides and then DRY embossed the stitched border by running it through my Spellbinders Platinum machine. Finally I mounted onto a brown card base. Voila!

Okay, now bring on the Pumpkin Spice latte!☕

Supplies Used:
Floral Border Cling Background stamp
Rose Gold Embossing Powder
Brushed Happy
Glass Slippers Sequins
Double Stitched Rectangle Dies (Large)
110 lb. brown card stock from Recollections
Mini Misti
Zig clean color real brush markers
