Be Inspired Wednesday - A Thanksgiving color card

This week at Passionately Artistic we have been asked to use green, orange, and brown along with a Thanksgiving theme. This is the card I created. :)
Card stock: Paper Trey Ink Perfect Match: Ripe Avocado™, Orange Zest™, and Dark Chocolate™
Ribbon: Paper Trey Ink Saddle Stitch Ripe Avocado™
Embossing: 5x7 Holly Ribbons Emboss Folder™, Swiss Dots Emboss Folder™
Cartridge: Winter Woodland™

Button: Paper Trey Ink Holiday Mix™
Twine: Paper Trey Ink Rustic Cream Button Twine™
Glossy Accents
Ink: Momento™, Versamark™
Sentiment: Hero Arts CL272™
Embossing Powder: Filigree Gold™

Cut Branch 2 card feature from Winter Woodland at 5.5" out of Dark Chocolate.
---Note: I left the real dial size off, but it did not translate to the leaves, so that is why the measurement is different--
Cut leaves at 2.25" out of Ripe Avocado.
Emboss leaves with swiss dots.
Ink around edges of leaves with Momento brown ink.
Ink the top of the raised dots with Momento brown ink.
Cut layer for background out of Orange Zest.
Emboss Orange Zest background with Holly Leaves Emboss Folder™ using your Cuttlebug™.
Adhere orange layer to back of brown front of card using your Glue Glider Pro™ or other adhesive.
Stamp sentiment (this one is from Hero Arts™) using VersaMark ink.
Pour gold embossing powder over the top and shake off all excess.
Using heat embossing tool (I used EK Success Coloriser™ and LOVE it), emboss sentiment
Doodle around all edges and on acorn as well as branches and leaves as desired.
Use button twine around button and adhere to acorn using small pop dot.
Add ribbon and secure with Glue Arts Extreme Adhesive Squares™ on the back of the bow.
Smile and enjoy your card! :)
