Sisterhood of Crafters - Golden Days of Fall

Hello my friends!
Today I have a card for the new challenge over on The Sisterhood of Crafters!

Our theme, chosen by Vicki R. this time around, is:

(Use GOLD on your projects)

 I began today's card by creating this fall colored background by
sponging various yellow, gold, red TH distress inks onto a white card stock
panel.  Next I stamped my OLD SU (circa 2007) stamps using Versamark
and embossed with Gold Embossing Powder then heat set.

My gold 4x6 panel was too small to mat the entire fall panel so I cut
a portion off and simply put it behind the top part of my panel.
I used another gold 4x6 to create my sentiment panel which was die cut using
the Sue Wilson - Australian Collection - Background Die.

Sue Wilson Designs - Australian Collection - Background Die

Obviously I only used the inside small dies.  But what a fabulous
die set ... so many options!

I hope you'll come join in our challenge fun at The Sisterhood of Crafters!
