Another fall birthday

This will be for another family birthday coming up soon!  Joan's Touch has a challenge to use something already cut, alter it, and create a card.  I had this circle cut in purple.   I thought I had a good solution - use gold Brilliance ink to give it a gilded look.  The final result is not very sparkly and does not look gilded, but does have a look of fall.   I also used a "bubble" embossed piece that was in my drawer ( I have a lot of pre-embossed pieces).  I used Ranger disress ink to sponge.  That folder is available at Joan's Garden shop.  The Blessings die came from that shop.  I used the Thanksgiving look image at ODB for inspiration.  Oh, yes, several of the pieces of CS and DP were sort of pre cut - from my scrap collection.

Oh, Dorothy, your card is perfectly inspired by the photo you chose!! I love the colors and the wonderful textured background! And I love the dies you've chosen, especially "blessings." So glad you've joined us once again for the ODBD Shining the Light - always a delight! Hugs, sweet friend!
