Autumn Birthday

I got an order last night to make 4 birthday cards for late September so I went into Autumn mode and made this one first. I took a scrap of Autumn dsp (no name on the back) and stamped it with a Sugarloaf Inc leaf stamp in Versamark, and embossed it with gold ep. Then I sponged all over it with Really Rust ink to give it a little more depth of color. The leaf image is a Nestability die, and before I removed the paper from the die, I took a brown marker and drew the lines on the leaf in brown. It's popped up on foam tape and wrapped with gold cording. I punched 2 circles from the More Mustard cardstock and inserted a leaf brad in one, while wrapping gold cording around the open prongs of the brad. I glued the other circle on the back, and tied that onto the cording on the leaf. The sentiment is by Hero Arts and the cardstock is Tangerine Tango.
I hope you're all enjoying a great Thursday, and thanks so much for stopping by to say "hey!"
