Emboss Resist Fall FMS#10 and PPA #119

My card today is for two challenges;  the Sketch challenge #10 from Rita Wright at Freshly Made Sketches
 and also for Pals Paper Arts Holiday photo inspiration challenge #119.
However, I think you'll have to use your imagination with the 'holiday' part of my card. You'll just have to pretend my banner says 'Happy Thanksgiving'.... okay?  I just saw this inspiration photo, but I really needed a Get Well card instead, so here is my card.
I started with a crumb cake base and stamped the "French Foliage" in versamark and covered with clear embossing powder, then heated with the heat gun. Then I just started covering the front with daubers and ink. I started with the lightest colors first; more mustard and added cameo coral. I continued with some lucky limeade, and finally rich razzleberry.
The center part was made by flagging the ends of a piece of chocolate chip cs which I ran through the crimper. I added another flagged piece of very vanilla stamped with a "Sweetly Said" sentiment, then I distressed that piece in all the colors of the card front. I added a few die cut felt leaves and top them with a "Holly Berry Bouquet" button tied with hemp twine. I popped the whole piece with dimensionals in the center of the front.
The inside has touches from the front.
Hootie says " Hoot Hoot Hooray...Thanks for stopping by today!

Di, these colors are gorgeous I love all the techniques you used, but the perfect touch is the felt leaves, so soft and pretty. French Folliage is such a pretty set don't ya think...well obviously you do! Great job on the sponging too.

Lovely card Diane. I love all the embossing and then the beautiful colours over top. The felt leaves are great all tied up with the button. I am sure that the recipient of this card will enjoy it. Hugs Karen
