O is for October's. . . .

golden hues.  The landscape around here is full of bright gold colors in the fields, on the ground and on the trees, mixed with all the other autumn hues. 


This card was made for the October CCC and sent to Barbara in Florida.  It features a Tim Holtz Sizzix leaf die colored with Tsukineko's Delicata gold ink pad.  The background panel was made using a mix of distress inks and outlined with a Pilot gold pen.  Some gold sequins with tiny clear gems for embellishments.

I am entering this in the Simon Says Monday challenge and Virginia's View clean and simple challenge.


Thanks for your visit!
