Sweater Weather ....

Just a super quick and cute card to share with you today! I must apologize for the thumb in the photo. Unfortunately, this is the only photo I had of this one. Anyway....I created this journal card for a sweater weather card swap I am in. I really like how it came out. I just randomly found some supplies and challenged myself to use them. 
I cut the leaf from Art Philosophy and the journal background from Artiste. I used some Saffron, Sunset, and Dessert Sand inks, some retired twine and bling from Recollections.

 I wanted to push myself to create something different with this set. So, I chose to use embossing powders and some delicious gold powder on the fundamentals eggplant paper to create these pocket pages. I must say.... I love how they turned out!
Look how pretty.....the gold and eggplant...
