Newton’s Nook offered a challenge of either using burlap or lace along with one of their stamps and you can find their challenge here:
Here is a look at my finished card. I started off with burgundy card stock measuring 5 1/2 x 4 and heat embossed this card stock with gold embossing powder. The stamp to create this background I used a Hero Arts wood grain stamp. The “Beautiful Leaves” stamp set says it all and could not wait to use it! I stamped and embossed the leaves on a pale yellow and off white card stock and embossed the leaves in the same gold embossing powder. After I fussy cut the leaves out and then I curled the edges of the leaves so as I adhered them to the background it would appear to be “falling leaves”. The sentiment was stamped to the corner of a doily and to finish the card up, I added a couple of lacy flowers that has been in my stash!
