My Heart Sings of the Beauty of Autumn

For the next two weeks of October - the members of Eileen Hull's Sizzix Design Team are making cards using her dies and embossing folders to show that  Eileen's dies are not just for making 3D items! 
Today I have a card that I made using Eileen's Spring Leaves Die and  her Honeycomb Embossing Folder.
First I embossed a white panel with the Honeycomb folder, then I used a stitched edge rectangle die to cut out the center .  I adhered the inner piece to the card base.  Then I die cut the Spring Leaves out of a piece of Brushed Copper metal sheet.  I colored the leaves with Adirondack Alcohol Inks - using Butterscotch, Cranberry and Lettuce.
I layered the leaves onto the center piece on foam dots.  Then I adhered the outer frame on thick foam dots so it sits higher than the center piece.
 
I stamped a sentiment on white, punched it with an oval punch and layered it over the frame with foam dots.  I added 3 rhinestones for a little extra bling!
Please be sure to check out Eileen's blog to see how you can use her dies to make cards - I think you'll be inspired!

Wowzer - your leaves are absolutely stunning, Julia - what a fabulous creation. The white on white embossed background really lets the leaves take centre stage.
