Stars and Stamps mid week throwdown

The Midweek Throwdown challenge on the OWH Stars and Stamps blog was to make thank you cards with autumn themes. The oval frame and sentiment were printed on the computer. I used Spellbinders dies and a Cuttlebug embossing folder. The yellow and black strip is embossed Core'dination paper that was sanded.
The background paper on this card and the first card are William Morris prints from an old calendar. The round frame is a digital image from Bird's blog http://www.birdscards.com/Default.aspx?tabid=595 I added the text before printing and colored it afterwards. Again I used Spellbinders dies.

This one has actual rubber stamping, LOL. The sentiment is an old one from Stampa Rosa while the frame is from Serendipity Stamps. I love this full sized Cuttlebug embossing folder. The shear ribbon is metallic but the camera doesn't catch that.

These cards are all very nice! I think I like the last burgundy and gold one the best. Very sophisticated with that gorgeous Cuttlebug folder.
