Hello Fall with a touch of Tim Holtz

Today I want to share with you my card project for this month with the Hello Fall line from LYB.  I combined the papers with Tim Holtz Alterations embossing folders for the Fall- sold in a 4 pack with a full sized one with words that I used on one of my layouts this month and 3 different borders-- I'm using 2 of the 3 in this project.  You can pick these up at Scrapbooks Plus along with the Limited Edition highly sought after 3 pack of Distress Inks which I'm also using on this project.
My card this month is a pocket card that I made using this tutorial on Splitcoast Stampers.  I used the embossing folders on my two tag inserts.  The first is above.  I cut my tag to size and ran it and the embossing folder through my Cuttlebug.  Then I sanded the raised edges.  I then got to work with my Distress Inks.  Lightly swirling my limited edition Distress Inks over the raised image.
 I repeated with a different paper from the kit and another embossing folder from the set, with more sanding and ink.  I then added cardstock sentiments from the Hello Fall kit to my tags and embellished with ribbon and buttons.
 Here is my completed card... hope you check out all the fun embellishments available this Fall!!
