OTWC Challenge #30

As usual, Kim Wilson has given us a beautiful inspiration piece for this weeks challenge! Look at all of these woodsy colors and textures. I am always happy when I get to do the challenges over at Off The Wall Craftiness!

My card base is Soft Suede card stock from SU! My DP is from Basic Grey. I found a scrap of a medium brown in my stash and used that to offset my shades. I printed my digital image in sepia tone. It is from Digital Designs By Elisa, and can be found in her Fall Dreaming Freebies. I pleated a strip of Soft Suede and hit the edges with Distress Ink. I then took my crackle stamp form Fiber Scraps, and distressed the pleats further. My embellishments are punched oak leaves, and a pretty metal and epoxy brad.

The inside of my card sports more leaf punches, a fall saying from MelanieMuenchinger's stamp set called A Year Of Leaves, which can be found at Gina K. Designs. I added strips of coordinating papers, and a small pumpkin digi from the same collection. It was punched out with a 1" SU! punch.

We had our first good frost this morning. The house was a wee bit chilly! I have a large brisket in the roaster and after this post I think I will bake a peach and and apple pie! Have a great weekend!

This is one fantastic card! I never thought to print a digi in sepia before, that's brilliant! I love the crackle look on the pleated border too! This is such a cool card for Autumn, and I think I can smell that wonderful pie baking right now! I'll put the coffee on, so bring it!! LOL
BTW, I left a little something for you over on my blog. Snag it and share it :)
