Dreamy Challenge: Fall with a View

Hi everyone! This month's Dreamy Challenge is from Tosh and she's challenging everyone to make a fall card with some sort of "window" on it.

You're all invited to play along....AND Michelle is having another GIVEAWAY!! You can see a picture of the prize on her blog. To enter, just link your project in the comments section of Michelle's blog. If you upload to SCS, use SDDC2 in the keywords.

My card is a 4.25" square card. The base is Textured Tangerine Tango. I layered the Haiku DP, Old Olive, and More Mustard colors together and then cut out a circle with one of my Nestabilities dies. I added the May Arts Olive Ribbon and Gold Metallic string, and then that entire DP layer was glued down with 1/8" thick foam tape that I got at Taylored Expressions. Next I used my JustRite Circle II Stamp Ensemble and stamped the Thanks sentiment in Versamark, and heat embossed it with JudiKins Detail Gold embossing powder. I cut that out with a circle Nestabilities die and then matted it against an Old Olive scallop circle. The Old Olive scallop circle is up on 1/16" SU Dimensionals, so the sentiment doesn't stand as high as the layered DP square.

The JustRite "Thanks" Stamp, May Arts Olive Ribbon, Gold Metallic string, and JudiKins Detail Gold EP are all available at Stamper's Dream.
