This month we are excited to have two Awesome Guest Hoppers that you should definitely check out.
So, I can't wait to share with you what I created.  First the card.
I started with a piece of Buttercream Cardtstock and a layer of Green Olive Cardstock.  I embossed the Green Olive with the Embossing Folder Say It!  I then distressed the edges and the top raised areas with Hazelnut Blend Ink.
Then, I stamped each of the leaves from the Autumn Days stamp set with Dark Roast ink on Cranberry Bliss, Summer Days and Oatmeal Cookie Cardstock.  I also stamped with Dark Roast ink, the sentiment from the Grateful Heart ATS on ButtercreamCardstock.  I then detail cut all these pieces out.
Using my Crease tool, I bent the leaves in the middle and curled the edges to bring them to life.  I then distressed them with Hazelnut Blend Ink.
To finish the card, I wrapped Natural Journey Twine around the card and tied a Wooden Accent button on.
Now on to the project. 
I first took a Styrofoam wreath and wrapped it with tan felt.  I then wrapped a piece of light brown burlap around the wreath.  I used the same materials that I used above to create this fall inspired wreath.  I then used some raffia to create the bow and the hanger.
Here is a little close up on the leaves.
And even closer look at the sentiment.   I used the Fun Stampers Journey Color Burst pencils to color in the "berries" on the sentiment.
Thank you for stopping by.  Don't forget to comment here using the #SFOctHop to be entered into the mystery giveaway.
