Fall Card

Today I'm entering this card in two challenges! This first one is Operation Write Home Fall Card with no sentiment Challenge! The next is for Friday Sketchers: Sketch Challenge #112. Here is the Sketch :

And here's my take on it:

As you can see,I changed it up a little bit. I used the crimper tool then crumpled up each leaf for added texture. I like the look of using the same pattern paper on one card like this. I just cut the paper to each panel and turned it so you would be able to tell they are different panels. I embossed one of the panels as well. Raffia to me says FALL!!! Well,I hope you like it , have a great weekend!! Thanks for stopping by!!!

Recipe for card:

  •  Card stocks: Old Olive,Chocolate Chip and Pumpkin Pie
