Autumn Mix Up


It certainly feels like fall here today with temps in the low 60's. I am still waiting for summer weather to get here in the Pacific Northwest but I guess those 5 hot days we just had were it!
Today's challenge on SCS was to mix it up using stamps from more than one company.
I combined the new sneak peek set called Autumn Fun from Mark's Finest Papers (available in mid-September) using the leaf and sentiment. Stamped the leaf in Tangerine Tango and shaded with pearlescent chalk pastels, embossed the sentiment in gold. I also used the French Foliage set from Stampin' Up on Confetti Cream cardstock in various colors of ink. I cut out two medallions from the new Autumn Spice specialty designer paper as part of the layout (Mojo100 sketch). Daffodil taffeta ribbon to embellish.
