(2011 Card #105) Pheasant, Crimson, Orange & Gold

Stamp from Mark's Finest Papers, Autumn Glory 2011.  I colored with Copics, then sponged background and cut out & matted with Labels Two Die from Spellbinder's.  Leaves stamp is also from Autumn Glory 2011.  I inked first with Versamark then with red ink & stamped on white CS & then heat embossed with clear EP.  Then using a mask I sponged color inside the leaves, then sponged the background with golden yellow. 
         I was able to use scraps for the focal & frame, thank goodness I save everything...the ribbons are scraps too & the focal covered up the splices!
