Autumn Inspired

 It may be Spring in Australia, but I love making Fall cards so I'm playing along with the Altenew Inspiration Challenge which has a very pretty photo to inspire us.

I stamped several foliage images from one of my fave Altenew stamp sets and die-cut with the co-ordinating dies. To make the background, I embossed instead of die-cutting, the cream panel with an Altenew Coverplate. I swiped gold ink on the edges of the card for definition. I'm not sure, what made me tear the edges of the sentiment strip, but I like the effect. To finish I added the bow and sequins.

Stamps: Altenew Leaf Clusters, Altenew Leaf Canopy (sentiment)
Dies: Altenew Leaf Clusters, Altenew Striped Leaf Cover Die

I'm also sharing my card at the following challenge:-
