Foliage Birthday- CCMC-HM2

So this week we have a great color challenge to go with the stamp sets we have been focusing on, Day of Gratitude and French Foliage. The colors are Cajun Craze, Old Olive, More Mustard and Early Espresso. Perfect colors for fall!

Here is what I came up with! I used the French Foliage stamp set with a few other accessories to make this masculine-ish birthday card!

I Stamped the leafs onto the card stock colors for this week using the Early Espresso classic ink, then cut them out and crumpled them up to give them texture. Then I mounted them onto the punched out 2 1/2" Circle that was stamped and dirtied up with the Early Espresso classic ink. Then I wrapped the image in Hemp Twine.

I gave a piece of Early Espresso texture by sending it through the Big Shot with the Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder, punched a dirtied piece of card stock using the Eyelet Border punch, stamped the sentiment from Sincere Salutations, added a few brads and mounted it all on the Early Espresso card base.
