Friends of WMS Blog Waltz - Autumn Harvest

Welcome dear stampers to the October Friends of Waltzingmouse Blog Waltz - this month's theme is Autumn Harvest.

The waltz is run through the WMS forum in the Playroom - so go check it out and sign up if you haven't alreadydone so , then you can join along!
For my Happy Harvest card today, I dry embossed a circle Nestability on the front of my card. (you can see my little tutorial on how I did this on my post here.) Then I gold embossed this beautiful fall wreath inside the circle and the sentiment in the corner. Both stamps are from the WMS set Peace and Plenty. A must have set for this time of year!

I colored the wreath with copics and sponged the edges and the circle with Old Paper Ranger Distress ink. To finish off this clean and simple card, I adhered 3 buttons in the top corner - one tied with a thin silk ribbon!

As always there is a contest going on in the forum and one lucky correct guess to the question will win a WMS stamp set of choice!

Red is a very common autumn harvest color - but I didn't use it on my card today.

Now I'm off to see what everyone else who's waltzing with us this month has created!

Stamps: Waltzingmouse - Peace and Plenty

Paper: Vintage Cream - PTI

Ink: Versamark, Ranger Distress - Old Paper

Accessories: glue dots, copics: YG03, E33, E59, YR04, Y17, hot gun, gold embossing powder, circle Nestabilities, blending tool & nonstick craft sheet - Ranger, vintage buttons and narrow silk ribbon - PTI, one button from my stash.

WOW! The contrasts of the two kinds of embossing, the sponging, and the coloring make what one would think a CAS style very rich in detailing and design! Beautifully done, Julia!
