MFP Speedy the Cat's Friends #17

The challenge over at MFP's Speedy the Cat's Friend's challenge is to create a harvest card. I started with glossy cardstock, and embossed a variety of leaf images with gold. I sponged the panel with various colors of inks to resemble the colors of autumn. I added a piece of pomegranate ribbon with a die cut of a couple acorns that were also embossed with gold ep. I went around all the edges of the card and mat with a gold deco pen. The sentiment is from a $1 stamp set I found at Michaels.
Wishing you all a great weekend! Thanks for stopping by:)

very pretty. I am not in love with autumn......... cause I hate to see summer go, but your card is just beautiful. Love the gold embossed leaves. Nice that they are not solid so you can see the pretty colors peaking thru.
