Tag You're It Week 28

The theme on Tag You're It this week is Autumn. This gave me the chance to used some paper that I have never used before and was perfect for the theme. I used cream card, brown paper with a wood grain pattern, gold paper, brown and cream ribbon, three amber coloured jewels and leaves that were die cut using a cuttlebug. I washed over the leaves with watered down gold ink, then when they were dry I roughly dabbed gold ink around the edge of each leaf and I embossed them to make them stand up from the tag. Unfortunately the gold ink doesn't show up too well in the photo, but it is quite shimmery in real life!!
