One layer Autumn Card

Hi! Less Is More have a One Layer Autumn challenge at the moment, so I've had a go at a couple of cards.

For this one, I masked the panel with post-it notes, but I cut a flower border in one to get the pattern above the panel. Took me ages to get all the sticky bits of post-it off the punch and the newly-made stencil, though! I stamped and embossed a few times in gold first, and then stamped again in yellows, oranges and deeps reds. I used ink dusters for the background. I stamped and gold embossed the sentiment, but it's a bit speckly as I forgot that you have to be careful when embossing after removing post-its, as the embossing powder can stick there :-s  Oh well. Here's my card:




I'm entering this in the following challenges:

Less Is More: "One Layer - Autumn"

My Time To Craft: "Autumnal Colours"

Come And Get It: "Happy Fall Ya'll"
