THE STUDIO...Thursday means a new challenge over at the Outlawz Twisted Thursday and this week's optional twist is "Autumn".  
I used an image from Oak Pond Creations, our sponsor for September. I colored it with my Promarkers and cut out a frame for it using a Spellbinders die. I used another die from the same set to make the card base.
The background paper is a scrap piece with orange and green lines, I chose this one as I felt it didn't take away the focus of the image and die cut details.
I stitched with gold thread around the edges of the frame and panel and added to wooden leaves.

This card is for these challenges:
1) Dies R Us Challenge - #10 Fall Festival
2) Craft Your Passion - Harvest Time
3) Incy Wincy Designs - Shaped Cards
4) Come and Get It - Use a Digi with An Autumn Theme
