Fall Thanks

This looked much better in my mind than as a finished card.  Oh well...   I used bits of DaisyD dp that I have had for several years - I like it a lot but it always looks like fall, and I do not make many fall cards. The rick rack is true vintage - I got it at a yard sale and the package is marked $.25!  The flower is by Petaloo.  I embossed the gold cs with a fall leaf folder by Sizzix.
Favorite things - I have so many.  Here they are represented by the dry embossing (I doubt I could create many cards without the Cuttlebug and now the Vagabond!!); fall colors, patterned paper, and being thankful:  http://dutchdare-cardchallenges.blogspot.com/

Hazel, what a truly pretty card. It was obvious that you enjoyed making it. Embossing always perks and pops the paper. I loved seeing the ric rac, it seemed to have a character of it's own. I admire anyone who can color so beautifully. Thank you so much for playing with us.
