Fab Friday #54

Happy November!! And Happy Fab Friday!! This week we are doing a color challenge ... and to squeeze the last bit out of fall, we have a GORGEOUS fall-ish color combo for you!!

I tried something I haven't done for quite a while ... I "double embossed" one of the elements on my card. Can you see it??? I used the Stylish Stripes Textured Impressions Embossing Folder on the Cajun Craze strip that's on the left-hand side of my card ... embossed the strip, rotated it 45 degrees, flipped it over (which I had to do so that stripes would run in the opposite diagonal direction - does that make sense??). It looks MUI-WAY-COOLER in person ... I need to try this again some time soon!!

Stamps: Dictionary, Amazing Birthday
Paper: Cajun Craze, Blackberry Bliss, Crushed Curry, Very Vanilla
Ink: Cajun Craze, Crumb Cake
Accessories:Autumn Accents Bigz Die, Woodgrain Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, Stylish Stripes Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, Banner Framelits, Fun Frames Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, Project Life Corner Rounder, Linen Thread, Burlap Ribbon, Gold Sequin Trim

Purdy colors, right???

Wendy, this card is stunning! I'm a texture person so I love the use of embossing and the text and the burlap and the sequins!
