French Foliage Sympathy - Try Stampin' on Tuesday # 80

Even though the temperatures have begun to soar again, we have had a taste of the fall to come.  Already some of the leaves on the trees are turning (that could be the drought we had) various hues of browns and reds.  So today, for the challenge at Try Stampin' on Tuesday here    I thought I would make a fall card - with sympathy that the summer is almost over.

 

Technique:
Base is Cherry Cobbler card stock.  The next layer is Very Vanilla which is embossed with the Framed Tulip folder and the edges sponged first with Crumb Cake ink, and then Early Espresso.  The swirly stamp from Elements of Style was stamped at an angle onto the middle of this layer, using Crumb Cake ink.  
Image Panel This was collage stamped using the stamp set French Foliage and the 3 colors of inks mentioned below.  A double butterfly (Very Vanilla and Cherry Cobbler) was attached at the upper left corner.  Pearls were placed on the body and extended over onto the panel.
Embellishments: Itty Bitty buttons, under which were placed a tiny circle of Cherry Cobbler card stock punch with the Itty Bitty punch (circle).  Pearls were attached to the top of each button.

Stamps:  Elements of Style, French Foliage, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Inks: Crumb Cake, Early Espresso, Cherry Cobbler
Papers:  Cherry Cobbler, Very Vanilla
Accessories: Framed Tulips folder, Butterfly punch, Word window punch, Itty Bitty circle punch, 1/2" cherry cobbler scalloped dotted ribbon, Itty bitty buttons, pearls, dimensionals
