Heavy Metal and Take a Hike!

My first offering to you today is a card for the Limited Supplies Challenge over at Split Coast - Joy in a Jar's instructions were to get back to basics - to only use shiny embellishments like gems, only paper - a bonus for metallic paper - and only scissors or straight cutter - no punches.And I get the bonus points because I used gold and red metallic foil board! I wonder what I can get with my bonus points?!?!? LOL!! I also embossed my leaves with Red Dragon Opaque Embossing powder which is very sparkly. I used Dew Drops as my only embellishment. The ink on the sentiment is Gold Pigment Ink. I colored in the leaves with a Spica gold pen. The sketch is from Amy Rysavy's blog that you can see here:


The leaf branch image is from a set called Autumn's Flowers by Artful INKables. Kristin is offering a free grab bag of stamps to everyone who orders $25 or more so be sure to check it out. This offer expires 10/12/08 so hurry on over!
