Western Autumn

Hello.  Welcome.  A big hi and hello to Bibiana and Elin who have recently joined my following.  Welcome. 

I wanted to make an autumn card using copper foil.  I decided to use STAMPlorations current sketch and make a card with Prima Doll Becky front and center

I took a kraft card that had a slight leafy pattern as my base.  I cut two copper foil panels and embossed with Cheery Lynn Diamond and Starburst embossing plate.  It looked a bit bare so I cut two pieces of barbed wire from black card using Cheery Lynn Barbed Wire Dies.  Becky has been paper pieced using Prima Lyric, Forever Young and Craftsman collection papers.  I used Prima Fairy Belle flowers and some copper leaf brads along the bottom of the card.
