Flourish with faux layers

Another fall themed card, to celebrate Thanksgiving weekend here in Canada.


I started off by sponging the base using Tim Holtz Scattered Straw distress ink and then a brown craft ink.  I then stamped the sentiment (a retired CHF stamp) in Tim Holtz Black soot and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.  Then stamped the Heartfelt Creations swirly leaves in Versafine (clear) and gold embossed, then added a touch of colour to the leaves with Copics.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:

DYSU - Warm Colours
GinaK Stamp TV - Faux layers
Simon Says Stamps: World Card Making Day
Dutch dare challenge - Fall is in the air
