Thankful - Color Dare #414 Inspiration Board

Here is my Design Team card for ColorMyHeart Color Dare #414 "Inspiration Board" using the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #388. This sketch was perfect for a Fall card and I was going to experiment again with alcohol base backgrounds. Wasn't real happy with my background so decided to die cut some pretty fall leaves and backed them with French Vanilla cardstock. These were stitched leaves but didn't show up very well so added black ink to the stitches. My background then changed to be French Vanilla cardstock using the embossing folder "broken glass" and layered with Sangria cardstock. 

French Vanilla and Sangria cardstock were cut using a wacky stitched square and offset Sangria layer to the back, added the leaves with 3D thin foam tape to the white wacky squares for additional dimension.    

Sentiments were cut and layered so that there was just a small outline in Sangria so it would blend and soften into the background.  Embellishments were added on top right-hand corner on the front and additional leaves place in the bottom left-hand corner on the inside.   

Please pop over to ColorMyHeart Color Dare and Atlantic Hearts to see DT members' inspiration, along with other participants that have entered these challenges.

These leaves look real!! The muddled colors are so pretty The embossed cardstock gives it just enough texture and I don't even want to talk about the offset blocking. Gorgeous through and through.
