Autumn Birthday Card

Come and Get It Challenges with week has a birthday theme card challenge.  I made this autumn birthday card using a leaf punch, wood grain embossing folder, flourish die cut, ribbon and and some fun brads. 

The maple leaves are punched from mix media paper left over from another project. Once the card was assembled I misted the card with a copper coloured spray mist.  

I hope you will join us this week for the birthday card challenge. Thank you for stopping by and have a creative day.
