Mixed Media Card Challenge #3 - Autumn Colors

It's the first of the month and time for a brandy new Mixed Media Card Challenge!  The theme is Autumn Colors with the optional elements of metal or leaves. Perfect for September for those of us who live in those parts of the world where the seasons change and fall is near!  You'll find the challenge here.
This month we are teaming up with Add a Little Dazzle - and using owner Monica's craft metal on our cards.  The thin flexible metal cuts so easily with your dies - it's a dream to work with!
I stamped my panel with Ornate Dots using 3 colors of Archival ink - Red Geranium, Fern Green and Orange Blossom and sponged the edges in Bundled Sage and Wild Honey Distress Inks.  I stamped an Art Parts leaf stem with Reverse Dots using the same 3 Archival inks then brushed Distress Crackle Paint over it and let it dry.  You can see the wonderful crackle on this photo below.
I die cut a piece of Dark Chocolate Brown Craft Metal with Tender Leaves Die, pounced over them with Rusty Hinge Distress Paint layering them over a die cut stitched rectangle.  I added a little twine bow and some sequins scattered around the card. The sentiment is from Sweet N Sassy.
And once again - a full view of my Mixed Media Card.  Autumn colors, metal and leaves!
You have until Sept 25th to link up your mixed media card creations - check out all the details here.  Remember - we are looking for texture, dimension and techniques!  I look forward to seeing your inspiring creations!
