Autumn Shades

We have a brilliant prize for you this month at Stamping Sensations and our challenge theme is 'Shades of Autumn'. Pic of prize is shown at the end of this post!
Would love for you to join us - please check out the challenge rules carefully as we are a stamping challenge and the stamp MUST be the focal point of your submissions!
Back to another CAS card for me this month but I did manage to get inky.
I used cream textured card and after making a mess of a one layer attempt ended up doing a separate panel attached with 3d foam pads!

Masked off the panel then sponged DI's Barn door, Dried Marigold and Squeezed Lemonade, blending together as I went along.

The leaf stamp was 1 of a set of 4 and is very old.
Stamped randomly then gold embossed.

Script stamp is by Indigo Blu inked with Versamark Toffee Crunch.

After removing the masking tape I simply ran a gold gel panel along the top and bottom of the panel, finishing with the gold embossed sentiment.

So get out all the colours that remind you of Autumn and come and join us this month - you could win these.......

I am currently having a little break away from my Presidential Team duties and other bowls commitments. Some seriously needed down time necessary - it's been non stop this year! A little bit of sun and a big chill out!!
I will get to visit you all though  as soon as I get back home, so thank you for visiting and for any comments you leave me.
