I feel like I have rediscovered Cherry Cobbler, and am loving the richness of this color. It works so well with the natural colors of the Crumb Cake cardstock and the Burlap Ribbon, as well as the sparkle of the Gold Glimmer Paper and Sequins!

Little tip –  when using glue dots to stick down sequins, gentle ‘wipe’ your embossing buddy over the top, to remove the stickiness from the glue dot that is peaking through the hold of the sequin.

I stamped the leaf from the featured stamp set For All Things and fussy cut. I then heat embossed the sentiment with the Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Emboss Powder, little hard to see in this image.

The Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding Ribbon is also a favorite of mine, so I couldn’t resist adding it to this card. I really like the different textures of the Decorative Dots Textured Impressions folder, the Glimmer Paper and the Burlap Ribbon, all so very different and unique, but come together well.

I think that this card would work well for someone special in your life, be it an anniversary card, or token gesture of appreciation, the richness and simplicity makes for a very special card, which I really like.

I hope that you have enjoyed the projects that you have seen thus far, and feel inspired to try the October Creative Collage for yourself.
