PTI Oak Leaf Bouquet

Hi everyone!  Hope you all had a good Saturday and are ready for a relaxing Sunday.  I have to go to work, but I made a card yesterday using a new set from Papertrey Ink called Autumn Abundance.  Love the images and the sentiments in the new set.  Even though we are roasting in Austin (we have had 61 days now of 100+ degrees) and I am not thinking of fall weather 'cause I do love the heat, I really love fall colours.  This card uses PTI buttons and dp and came together very easily.  The card is made from SU Sahara sand and stamped with a SU bg weathered stamp using River Rock ink.  The oak leaf bouquet image was stamped in SU basic brown ink and coloured with Copics and cut out.  I placed dimensionals on the back side of the image and popped onto a Sahara Sand circle that I used my nesties to make and emboss with.  The edges are sponged with the brown ink too and a little Sahara Sand on the front of the circle. 
Here is a close-up of the coloured leaves and acorns.  The ribbon is a remnant from some gift packaging that I kept to recycle.  Both dp's are from PTI bitty dots and the autumn abundance pack.  I really like the PTI paper packs because they have 6 sheets per pattern (3 small scale and 3 mini scale).  They are 8 X 8 sheets so they offer a little more freedom to create a border with , or, more card fronts!
Thanks for taking a peek today,
enjoy all the goodness out there.

Cheers, chriss
