"Autumn is a second spring..." card with fall background technique

Hello Crafty Friends!  Kathy Jo here sharing a colorful autumn card using one of Quietfire Design's new stamps "Autumn is a second spring":
Autumn is a Second Spring - Mounted
Yes, fall is starting here in Nova Scotia and I can't help but think of this quote as I walk through the woods.  Many of the trees are starting to change color and I often stop to admire the beautiful leaves on display.  Such a lovely time of year!
For my card I wanted to capture some of those bright autumn colors.  First I sprayed mixed media paper with Dylusions sprays in Postbox Red, Pure Sunshine, Squeezed Orange and Lemon Zest.  After drying I dry embossed the paper with Darice's leaf flourish embossing folder.  Using a brayer, I applied Versamark to the raised background and heat embossed with clear glitter embossing powder.  In the closeup below you can see the shimmer of the embossed area:
The paper was die cut using Elizabeth Craft Designs' Stitched Rectangles die and mounted on turquoise card stock.  The card stock was also die cut using Cheery Lynn's valence die and mounted as shown.  Yellow card stock was stamped using the Quietfire Design stamp in Archival Ink (Jet Black).  It was die cut using Elizabeth Craft Designs' Stitched Circle die and then foam mounted.  The finishing touch was 6 wee matching gems.
Thanks so much for stopping by!  I do hope you enjoyed the bright, autumn card!
Have a happy, crafty day!
Big hugs,
Kathy Jo
