My good friend Barbara Campbell is the hostess at the Mod Squad Challenge this week and she asked for a fall project in colors or images.  I have been following the Poppy Stamps blog and become a big fan of  Olga Direktorenko.You can find her blog Here .  She makes many of her cards using layers of frames with some sort of die cut sandwiched between the frames, dp and a layer of vellum.  I decided to try her technique.  I used Spellbinders A2 matting basics dies to cut the frames from gold and white card.   The fishnet die is a MFT dienamics die. and the pierced top die is from Spellbinders Celebration line.  I stamped the vellum with some leaves from Gina K designs Fall Foilage and embossed in gold.  I also found  a scrap of water colored paper in my scrap basket so I stamped the leaves on it and embossed in gold and fussy cut them.  The wheat is an IO die.  I don't remember the company of the flower die, but I used yellow card and sponged with cantalope ink. I used prills for the center of the flowers.  The sentiment is from Gina K Designs Sweetest Memories embossed in gold and cut out with a Spellbinders Labels 8 die.
