Unity Stamp Co. be Inspired Challenge August 2014

Welcome friends!  Today I am sharing a card I created for the Unity be Inspired Challenge.  I have to be honest, at first, I wasn't feeling this card; but the more I look at it, I like it just a little bit more.  I wish you could see how beautiful this tree is in person; the pics do not do it justice.  I had been wanting this stamp set for sometime; it is a Layers of Life set.  It is called tree of gratitude (September 2013).  I received this set after I completed my Growing in Unity week back in June 2014.  To get the perfect embossed image of the tree, I must've stamped and embossed it 15 times...no joke.  With this particular embossing powder, it looked best on really dark cardstock.  It was hard to see on lighter shades of cardstock.  The embossing powder is Ranger; it's called enchanted gold.  I thought this powder would be perfect for a fall themed card.  The leaves were stamped in early espresso (Stampin' Up) on patterned paper.  The banner was cut from pattern paper (Studio Calico).  The sentiment was also stamped in early espresso.  The sequins are from an old pillow.  Thanks for visiting and enjoy the pics!  Dawn
