Coldwater Creek Inspiration

If your like me, you get a ton of sale catalogues in the mail. I just got the latest fall Coldwater Creek one and found a bit of inspiration within its pages. Here's the wall hanging that inspired me.

This is what I came up with!

The leaf is from the Happily Grateful set from The Angel Company. I stamped it with Versamark onto ivory cardstock and embossed it using clear embossing powder. Next I used Black Soot distress ink and covered the entire surface using the direct to paper technique. After letting it dry, I ironed off the embossing powder.

I cut it into three panels and layered it with ivory cs and then with black. Added some ivory satin ribbon and a bow and then adhered it to an ivory card base.

I think it turned out pretty good! What do you think?
