Wallpaper Inspired

Happy Saturday, friends!  It's a beautiful, sunny day here and we still have some beautiful fall foliage upon which to gaze.  I love it!

My inspiration for this masculine card came from a website called Wallpaper Collective hosted by Splitcoaststampers.  I love the gradient inks in the Lucky Stripe, Mica on Gold Mylar paper.  I'm also entering this into the Pals Paper Arts challenge to use River Rock, Soft Suede, and Early Espresso inks.

I gold embossed the Rubbernecker Petitite Folk Art Maple Leaf and then sponged the three inks over them with sponge daubers.  Since I wanted to keep this card masculine and simple, I only added dark brown ribbon and gold brads as embellishments.
