This card is created for the At Joan's Gardens Challenge this week where we are to use fall colors, leaves and a bird or a tree on our card. The textured cardstock base is sponged with Tim Holtz Old Paper and Walnut distress inks using masks on the negative cuts of the leaves. The leaves are die cut from Tim Holtz Alterations Bigz Die 656927 Tattered Leaves. The brown cardstock leaves were pressed onto Kaleidacolor Autumn Leaves inkpad and then heavily spritzed with Gold Tushinko Spritzer. The base for the leaves is die cut from Labels 20--Spellbinders S5-026 Die. The cream colored paper for the sentiment has been pressed onto the Autumn Leaves Kaleidacolor inkpad to create the marbled background for the leaves and the top Fancy Tags Two S5-030 tag. The oval on top is punched, and topped with Starform gold Happy Birthday sticker (#300 Starform Text Stickers). The little golden swallows are stamped with a little bird from Elementary Elegance stampset by SU, and heat embossed with detail gold Ala Mode embossing powder. All of these dies, inks, and spritzes, are available at Joan's Gardens.
