For today's project I utilized this layout from Wanda which I adore - the Ralph Lauren look is timeless and these colors, textures and patterns are well-suited for a male-themed birthday card.
EK Success deer head punch - fully adhered the thin, crumpled gold paper I bought at Marco's Paper eons ago to thicker cardstock, then punched the deer out. Ivory 'shield' is a spellbinders label 25.
Patterned paper is from an old October Afternoon line called Road Map - love this plaid pattern.
assembly note: the boxwood twine was neatly stitched into place in three spots versus using glue.
Fall is upon us here in New Jersey! These leaves were collected from a single spot by the mailbox.
