I used Black Embossing Powder with Versamark to stamp this image from the Day of Gratitude stamp set. Then I dipped a sponge dauber into the ink on the cover of my Elegant Eggplant and Pumpkin Pie Stampin' Pads. By gently rubbing the ink on in circles, I colored in the image. The embossing helped me blend and stay inside the lines. I cut the image out with my Paper Snips. I also embossed the leaves using my very juicy Gumball Green Stampin' Pad and Clear Embossing powder and I cut those out as well.

My background is Pumpkin Pie card stock that I embossed using the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder and my Big Shot. The cute acorn stamp was colored using Early Espresso and Crumb Cake Stampin' Write markers. The sentiment used Elegant Eggplant ink. I finished my sentiment panel by backing it with Basic Black card stock and wrapping a piece of Basic Black Scallop Dots Ribbon toward the top.

I hope you enjoyed seeing my creation and that you will leave your comments below.

Love this set. I like the way you have added the additional leaves. And the white space really adds to the great composition.
