Elegant Harvest - The Rubber Cafe


This week's challenge at The Rubber Cafe was to make an elegant fall card.  I decided to go with fall colors and some fruits of the harvest for my card.

I used the Bon Appetit set and colored it with the following Copic Markers: V09, V17, YG95, YG93, E44, E43, E42, E41.
I also used some Candi on this card...I used the Regal Gold on the Spellbinders Beaded Circle Die.  They are flat if you attach them with a Scrap Happy Glue as I did here, or you can pop them up with Candi Fix Foam Pads. 

The come in scads of colors...and I used the chocolate color in the Chocolate Cherries set for my flower centers.  You can flip them over for a totally different effect, how fun is that?!

I did a bit of paper embroidery in some gold floss and layered it on an embossed background.  Be sure you Check out the Rubber Cafe Blog for the challenge rules and PRIZE information!  We hope you can play along!
