Now here is my project, it is a card to celebrate Fall.

I used a Couture Creations embossing folder, "Hyper Magical", and embossed a light green piece of cardstock. Then embossed several other pieces of Fall colored cardstock and cut out the leaves. I also used a green marker to highlight the other areas. Then glued the leaves on the light green. I used gold ink on the entire image and also added Couture Creations gold gemstones in the little circles.

So, get hoppin'!

A little about World Card Making Day...
World Card Making Day began in 2006 as National Card Making Day founded by Paper Crafts magazine, and was so popular, it is now a worldwide event. 
Celebrating its eighth year in 2013, World Card Making Day is celebrated annually on the first Saturday in October. It's a day for the card-making community -- hobbyists, retailers, and manufacturers -- to unite and celebrate the connection and creativity that is the heart of card making.
