A few nights ago I went to an autumn dinner party with a few close friends. The food was fabulous! We had roast beef, potatoes, acorn squash, and salad with apple pie for dessert. My favorite was the acorn squash with cranberry. Here's a picture:
As you can see, we ate a lot of it! I took one of these home for the next day!
I made a little "welcome autumn" card for everyone at the party:
This is another of the shaker cards I love so much. I used the usual Paper Trey Ink supplies with background paper from an old Basic Grey line: Indian Summer. I filled the shaker with some confetti sequin leaves I found in my stash. Everything old is new again! Sequins are all the rage and I have to say I have a fair supply of all kinds that I have collected through the years.
About the leaf embellishment: This is a Hero Arts leaf stamp that I stamped in Clearsnap's Alpine pigment ink and then sprinkled various embossing powders over: orange from the Stampendous "Painting with Powder" line, a sort of matte gold from Ranger, and an old Ranger Adirondack Terra Cotta color. I have to say that like sequins, I am glad I have collected a lot of various embossing powders in my day. And unlike what some say, mine don't seem to go "bad".
I hope you like the card! I liked the food and the company!
