Happy Fall Ya'll

So with the beginning of fall, I am leaning towards doing some fall cards, Halloween cards, with still a few other everyday cards thrown in here and there.  This little beauty is my first double z card.  It turned out so pretty!  Some of my best copic coloring to date on the jar digital stamp.

I started with 110lb recollections cardstock in white.  The card when closed measures 4 1/4 by 4 1/4.  Still not sure how I ended up with that strange size card.  (Definitely going to need to make the envelope to go with this odd size😜.)

The image on the tag is from Bugaboo Stamps.  I love their digital images.  This is colored using Copic markers.  I then used some stitched dies to cut out the image and the craft tag behind it.

From my paper scrap stash I gathered all the rest of the cardstock I wanted.  Choosing oranges, blues, and browns.  Every piece of cardstock and patterned paper was distressed using Gathered Twig Distress ink.

The flowers and leaves are die cut from scrap paper as well.  The lighter green leaves I laid down a bit more dark color on so the contrast was more pleasing to the eye by using Momento's Bamboo Leaves.

The sentiment I stamped in Momento's Texedo black ink.  This sentiment is from Unity Stamp Co.  The frame around and the die I cut out the sentiment with comes from Papertrey ink.  I did this on some Recollections white cardstock but it was too bright, so I used the Gathered Twig Distress in again to add some color.

I added flat back pearls in a gold color to the flowers and two white pearls next to the sentiment.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
