Fall Anniversary

 Today I'm sharing a card that I will be adding to Muse Challenge #87.  Here is the muse card for this challenge...

I liked the colors and design so I used an interpretation of both for my card. 

My leafy sprig wasn't very long so I had to do some selective stamping to make it a little longer. Since I wasn't to sure how well I would do I didn't stretch to far into the middle. Once I was done with the left side I thought the right was to bare so I added a few on that side as well. I also wanted to use an embossing folder to since I hadn't in a while. 
The leafy sprigs (CTMH) and sentiment (Hero Arts) were stamped in Pistachio (Memento Luxe), while the berries (CTMH) were stamped using Morocco (Memento Luxe) then I added some orange stickles to make them sparkle. I'm loving the stamp set the sprigs and berries are from, I've used another from the same set in my Thankful for you card

Oh and I decided to try my hand at adding this to Virginia's View challenge. I thought it would be a nice addition the Clean and Simple challenge she is having this month. I've been wanting to play along and this card seemed like a good first try!

Thanks for stopping by!

* The Close to my Heart (CTMH) stamps I used came from this Workshop on the go kit
