Autumn Accents and Orchard Harvest Again...

Today's post is a card I did for a "Fall" themed swap in which I participated.  This is the second card I've posted using the new-this-year Autumn Accents (leaf) die, and it won't be the last  ; )   I have another project under construction as we speak... lol!  I just love all the things you can do with this die and the colors we can use!
Colors used are Cherry Cobbler, Raspberry Ripple, More Mustard, Lucky Limeade, Cajun Craze and Early EspressoThe card base is More Mustard with a layer of Early Espresso which has been embossed with the Woodgrain Embossing Folder (can you tell I really really like that folder?  lol!)  
I took a strip of the corn print from the Orchard Harvest Designer Series Paper package and softened it a bit by pulling it over the Bone Folder.  I then put Sticky Strip Adhesive on the Early Espresso card layer and "gathered" the designer paper over that.  I added Early Espresso 1/4" Stitched Grosgrain ribbon which had been threaded through one of the new Designer Round Ribbon Slides from the Holiday Catalog.
Three leaves were tucked under the ruffling then the sentiment from the Pursuit of Happiness set, stamped on More Mustard and punched with the Designer Label Punch was added with Dimensionals.

 It was fun to try a technique I hadn't done before: "gathering" the Designer Paper.  I hope you enjoyed the card.
