The Card Concept Challenge #159

 Hello my stampy friends!
We're back from our summer break at the CARD CONCEPT!
I hope all of you had a wonderful summer!

How fast time goes by! It is almost fall!
Speaking of fall...
Look at this gorgeous inspiration board!
Aren't these colors gorgeous????

And here is my card:

I was inspired by those beautiful colors to play with some alcohol inks!
That is how I achieved the background!
I always forget how much fun it is to play with alcohol inks!

I then die cut the beautiful fall leaf out of some purple metallic paper!
And then I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment with gold!

 I hope I have inspired you to create a card or project to share with us!!!

The style of my card would be considered

 Mixed Media

2 or more mediums

    (inks,embossing powder, pencils,watercolor, ets)

May include dimensionals

(Embossing paste, gesso, fabric, papers, foil)

May include heated elements

Can be a variety of styles

(Clean & Simple, Graphic, Shabby Chic, Grunge)

I hope you will create a card or project using any of the  styles we have defined or create your own with a combination of styles.
All of the styles are explained HERE.

The Rules:

1.  Use the challenge inspiration to create a card.
