Monthly Challenge MHKDesigns September/October

Photo/Color Inspiration for MHKDesigns September/October Challenge or
Anything Goes with MHKDesigns Products 

I was inspired by the colors in the photo:

I used Mum's the Word digital set and colored it with Copic markers.  I used fall papers using the Scor buddy on my background, loosely applied some Versa Mark ink and then gold embossing powder for a bit of a grungy look.  Die cut a doily, my stitched circle and some leaved.  I touched the leaves with a Versa Mark pen and gold embossed them for some character.  I added some gold thread and gold gems, a wee bit of bold embossing powder on the mums and here we are:
