Fall Fun Place Card

There is an Inspiration Challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments this week.  Here is your Inspiration....

When I was looking at this photo, I saw a beautiful display for the dishes for a nice Thanksgiving meal.  What could go better (with my rarely used Fine China) than a nice, handmade place card?!  I did the "rock and roll" technique on the leaves to give it more dimension with colors.  I inked it with More Mustard first, then rolled it in Pumpkin pie then last in a little dab of Cherry Cobbler.  Here is the result:

For the rosettes, I punched out a 1 3/4" Circle then cut it into a spiral starting from the outside to the center.  I coiled it in to the center and dropped a glob of glue and held it in shape to form the little flower.  Here is a close up of the little rosettes that are topped with the Champagne Fine Glitter:

Oh yeah, my mom's name is Marlene and she hosts a lovely Thanksgiving dinner, so I thought her name on my project is fitting.  A beautiful place card for a beautiful hostess.

Colors:  Pumpkin Pie, Cherry Cobbler, More Mustard, Chocolate Chip, Very Vanilla
Stamps:  Gently Falling
Accessories:  Scallop Circle Die #2, 2 1/2" Circle punch, 1 3/4" Circle punch (for the rosettes), Word Window and Modern Label Punches.  Chocolate Chip Satin Ribbon, Linen Thread, Champagne fine glitter

Happy Stamping,

This is beautiful and such a nice addition to the table! Our family Thanksgiving is very large and we have a buffet style table, but I'm thinking Christmas would be the perfect time to recreate this!!

This is just BEAUTIFUL! I love your paper rosettes, ribbon tied off to the side, pretty much everything. I'm thinking these would make fun housewarming gifts for friends!
