It's Fussy and Fancy Time!

Hello Everyone!
It's time once again for a new challenge over at the 
 Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge
This new challenge is hosted by Jo and the theme she has chosen is


And, our sponsor is Wild Orchid Crafts

I don't know about you, but I just LOVE this time of the year!
The air is cool and crisp, the leaves are changing
into such beautiful color, football is back on TV ... oh yea, I watch football with
my sweetie!  Plus, I intend to enjoy 
every minute I can outdoors before winter sets in!

Thinking about those beautiful Fall colored leaves was what inspired today's creation.
I recently saw a friend using the 'gilding flakes' on a project
and I knew that would be the perfect medium to use for Fall leaves.

The leaf dies I used is a very OLD Spellbinder die set and I love the
deep embossing it leaves.  For my maple leaves I used the sticker sheet for the gilding
but then die cut again from black card stock to use as a 'shadow effect'
The oak leaves were die cut from foil panels from the DCWV foils 6x6 pack.

Instead of adding an extra layer of matting card stock, 
I simply (and carefully) went around the edge of my white background
panel with a Gold Pilot Marker.  To finish off my card, I've added
some green bakers twine, sequins and a sentiment.
