Thank You Fall

I'm back again trying to get in a few more cards before my mother-in-law comes to visit for a week.  I love having her here but she is not a crafter so I will not be in my craft room very much next week.  So, here is another card I will be offering at my next card buffet.  This card is "cased" from a card I adore from Nina Marie Design.  I changed it to fit a fall theme and it fits in perfectly for a few challenges this week. First is the challenge at Tic-Tac-Toe Challenges found HERE.  I went with the right hand column of sequins-thank you-fall theme.  The second challenge is at Stampin' Royalty found HERE and the challenge is fall themed.  The third challenge is at "Just Us Girls" found HERE.  The challenge is to use sequins.  Speaking of sequins, did you notice my sequins look a bit different?  Well, I wanted to use gold sequins and the only ones I had were flat ones strung together in sequin trim.  I much prefer the look of cupped sequins, rather than flat, so I ran my sequins through an embossing folder to give them some texture.  Kind of strange, kind of fantastic!
