Many Thanks

I'm late, I'm late, I'm late and I'm soooo sorry!  I had computer issues this week and I HATE trying to blog and type on my ipad!  So, welcome to this week's challenge from The House That Stamps Built.  This week it is a color combo:

I took the gold literally and used metallic gold paper and gold embossing powder.
I started by inking the stripes in a chocolate brown and a stencil.  I stamped the leaves in versamark and embossed them with gold embossing powder, then colored them in with an orange marker.  I stamped the "thanks" with the chocolate brown and then the "many" with gold embossing powder.  I added a mat of gold paper behind the sentiment and a tiny strip along the striped edge.  In this photo you can see the shine of the gold and the shimmer of the embossing.
I hope you will get a chance to play along with us.  This color combo is perfect for fall/thanksgiving cards, but you could use them for so many other things.  Hop on over to The House blog to see what the rest of the team created; there are some gorgeous creations over there.

Supplies:
Stamps: Repeat Impressions "Falling Leaves" and "Thanks Cling Set"
Fiskars "Upper Crest" border punch
MFT "Diagonal Stripes" stencil

Challenges:
Cards Galore Challenge--anything goes
Dragons Lair Challenge--inspiration photo
Alphabet Challenge--R is for Recipe (I used: Sentiment, stamps, dies/punches, embossing)
