Autumn At The House Of Cards

      Autumn has arrived at the House Of Cards. This month we would like you to use our photo for inspiration, add texture and/or use the colour palette.
      This card has a background of Kraft card embossed with an autumn leaf design, it was then coloured with several different gilding waxes and buffed to a subtle shine.
     The large pumpkin is a Sixxiz die, the small ones are a Cuttlebug die that has an embossing folder with it.
     The pumpkins are coloured with a mix of Distress inks and alcohol markers after being cut from orange pearl and green card.
     The largest pumpkin is stuck flat onto the backing but the others are mounted on foam pads to give dimension.
     The mat is a layer of chocolate pearl card which is then stuck on to an olive green card blank.  I have not added a greeting as yet, this will be done when I have decided what to use it for.

     Come and join us at the House Of Cards, we have lots of inspiration for you that will be showcased each week, we would love to see your take on our photo.

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:
