Tag You're It # 31

I just had to play along again with
The inspiration was terrific by Jeanne and ALL the TEAM members!!
What I loved about Jeanne's tag was the GOLD.  When I look out on a fall day and all those golden leaves are on the ground I just think of bits of gold from heaven and how beautiful it makes the brown earth look!
I used some distress ink on the paper by sponging on various fall colors, then I used my versamark pen to go around the edges of the leaves, dipped them in the gold embossing powder and heat set them.  I love how they look.
I decided to emboss a piece of white paper with the same gold ep so I could die cut the word "blessings" to match the leaves.
dies:  PTI Tag It # 6, Lawn Fawn Stitched leaves, SSS "blessings"
Stamps:  Keep it Simple:  Thanksgiving 
misc  Michaels: organdy, daffodil ribbon, twine from May Arts
paper:  Recollections:  Craft It vintage Glam, Pure Poppy, PTI Kraft card
Here is the inspiration photo:
Heart hugs and have a beautiful weekend friends!
