The Card Concept Challenge #100 !!!!!!!

Welcome to the 100th post here

We are so excited, that we thought we would celebrate
 by asking
Special Guests to play with us !

My special guest is the very talented

Owner and Creator of PAPER SWEETIES

Just look at her ADORABLE CARD!

Debbie was inspired by the pretty pinks and pumpkins!

Here is my card:

I was inspired by the pretty pinks and gold!

I used the Prima Metallic Accents watercolor cakes and Tim Holtz watercolor paper to make a pattern paper for the leaves.  I stamped and heat embossed the leaves with gold embossing powder. And then cut them out with thier matching dies,
I know, you usually don't see pink leaves, but I think they're pretty!

The white background panel was dry embossed with Stampin Up's  Ruffled Embossing Folder.
I LOVE this thing!

The sentiment is from the NEW Paper Sweeties October RELEASE called HAPPY FALL Y'ALL
I stamped the sentiment with Versamark onto some gold vellum paper and heat embossed it with gold embossing powder!

I think my style of this card would be considered 
Classy & Elegant:
Shiny finish
Sparkling embellishments
Rich color scheme
Sophisticated sentiments
Layered Testures
Awe & Impress

Please feel free to use any of the styles we have defined or create your own with a combination of styles.
All of the styles are explained HERE.

I hope I have inspired you to join us here at

Mackie, I arrived at your blog after viewing the gorgeous cards posted on "The Card Concept" blog. I wanted to share with you that as soon as I saw your card with the pink leaves, I fell in love with it. Yes, pink leaves aren't the norm; however, this is pure and elegant art! We can choose to step outside the box in creating art, and I'm glad you did as you produced a very elegant and outstanding card! Love it!
