Papercraft Star Challenge #66

     Hope you've gotten some fall weather where you live to enjoy like we have here.  Our leaves really haven't started turning yet, but it's getting close.  Our Papercraft Star photo inspiration this week should definitely put you in the mood for fall.  You can check it out in my sidebar.
     For my card I've created a tall one.  Don't see many of those here do ya?  LOL  I used a base of dark brown Bazzill and then used a beautiful script digital image from our sponsor, The House Across the Bay.

     I rarely break out my alcohol inks, but I did for this card.  I cut the leaves out of some Inkssentials Glossy paper with a Nestie and then colored them with the ink in pretty autumn shades.  A little lace and some seam binding combined with copper brads finish the card.
     Make sure you pop over to the blog and check out all the DT cards.  We also have a special guest designer this week, my incredibly talented friend Dana Christiansen.  This lady has some way mad Copic skills!
     We would love to see your creations linked up for our challenge this week.  Just create something inspired by the photo and include a leaf.  The Inlinks closes at 6:00 a.m. EST on Monday.  Lots of great digital downloads at THATB for our winners to choose from.  :-)
     Happy Wednesday!

Tracy, those leaves are so pretty. From my screen here, they look like copper tin. Love the way the glossy paper and alcohol inks turned out! I must try that soon!

At first I thought your leaves were made of metal Tracy! They look delicate, fab background and how did you get your bow so perfect, gnarl... I always fight with my ribbons, lol! Hugs, Ira
