Paper Players - A Color Challenge from Jaydee

This week Jaydee has a beautiful color challenge for The Paper Players. As soon as I saw this challenge, I pictured falling leaves and created this card using embossed leaves and brayered paper. To offset the gold embossed leaves, I created a sliver of paper with glass glitter to set beside the leaves. A small sentiment finishes the card for a quick card with a great color challenge combination.

Paper - Very Vanilla, Early Espresso
Ink - more mustard, bravo burgundy, cajun craze, versamark
Stamps - Petite Pairs, Gently Falling
Accessories - brayer, gold glass glitter, dimensionals, gold embossing powder
