Branch Out & New SU


I tried to see how many new goodies (shown with *)I could use on today's card.
The *Branch Out set* was stamped with Caramel and Chocolate, leaves in Apricot, Celery, and Pumpkin. After stamping I ran it through the Big Shot using one of the new *textures embossing plates*. It looks really cool close up and kind of hard to distinguish it in the photo. Embrace Life sentiment in pumpkin with *eyelet border punch* SAB *Delicate Dots designer paper* was used with Pumpkin Pie and Whisper White cardstocks. *SAB ribbon bundle in celery*. Embellishment was made with a decorative silver brad and a Real Red brad adhered to it (I cut off the prongs.)The cut out branch is from *God's Beauty level 1 hostess set*. Oh, how I love new stuff!!
This is for today's technique lover's challenge on SCS to cut it out! and Julee's Mojo Monday 73 challenge.

another great card.. when I saw this set in the catalogue I didn't like it, but I love it on your card - maybe it's how all the small details came together
