Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge - Orchard

It's August 1st and time for a new Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge! It hard to believe it is already August. The new Challenge - Orchard makes me look forward to the start of fall, my favorite season! 

And here's my take on the challenge!

I stamped the Apple Wreath Stamp from Taylored Expressions on Kraft Card Stock with white ink and embossed with white embossing powder, and then colored the wreath with Copic Markers. The wreath is die cut with the Seasonal Wreath Die. 

I used the Bead Board Embossing Folder to add texture to the paper behind the wreath. 

The patterned paper is from Carta Bella - Fall Blessings. The sentiment is from the Apple Wreath Stamp Set, stamped in Delicata Golden Glitz Ink and embossed with gold embossing powder on a strip of vellum. Behind the vellum I added the leaves with the Leafy Branch Die. 

Stop by the Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge:  Orchard for the challenge details and to play along with us!
