Vintage Copper Leaves PP312

Hi friends and happy Sunday!  Welcome to another week with The Paper Players where the lovely LeAnne has a seasonal and pretty color challenge for us:
 
The calendar may say September (BTW, how did THAT happen?!) but it's nowhere near fall temperatures here in Florida!  So, I was glad for the opportunity to pretend with LeAnne's pretty fall palette. 
 
I knew that I wanted to use my all-time favorite leaf stamp...Vintage Leaves...and I couldn't wait to see them embossed in copper.  The delicate detail of the embossing really shows up on the colored leaves. 
 I stamped the leaves on Cajun Craze, Crushed Curry and Pear Pizzazz, heat embossed with copper ep and cut them out with the coordinating Leaflit Thinlits.  So pretty!  I tried the leaves on several different background neutrals and really liked the way they popped on Basic Black [retired] DSP.  
A little swirl of new black metallic thread helps pull together the DSP and the sentiment.  I think this card will go for a male colleague with an October birthday.  MAYBE by then it will feel like fall around here!

Be sure to go check out the rest of the Paper Players Design Team for their awesome inspirations.  We hope you will join in the fun before our challenge closes on Friday, September 16 at Noon (PST).  Thanks for stopping by!

Beautiful leaves! They really pop off the black background and I really like how you arranged them on your card.

Nancy, I LOVE this card! The beautiful copper embossed leaves are gorgeous! Your card screams FALL even if we aren't anywhere near cooler weather in the south. Have a great week, My Friend! XX

Nance,
This is such a great card with the pairing of the Large Leaves and the Large Font!
Love the copper embossing as well. So FALL for sure. I agree the black DSP and black thread really connect the whole theme. Very nice and great for a masculine card too. Hugs.

You are right, these colors with the copper are striking on the black. This is truly lovely!

Gorgeous Nance - those embossed leaves are so striking against the black. A perfect sentiment placement too!
