Autumn Blessings...A Passion For PTI Challenge

This is for the A Passion for PTI Challenge - Long & Tall Cards.
It's definitely not as cute as Aimes' card but...it'll have to do....

I picked the First Fruits Stamp set from PTI...I love this stamp set. 
It's actually a pretty versatile stamp set, but since Fall is almost upon us I thought a fall card would be appropriate.

I made a long & tall card using white cardstock, covered it with some paper I got from Costco (yes, Costco!) and then added some cocoa cardstock.  I punched the cocoa cardstock with a MS punch.  I embossed the middle image in gold, sponged some ink on it and then stamped the string in Cocoa.  I wrapped the patterned paper with some twine and then added the middle image with some pop-up tape. 

Hope you like it!

Cardstock: CTMH (White Daisy & Cocoa)
Patterned Paper: Costco
Stamps: PTI (First Fruits)
Ink: CTMH (Cocoa)
Other: Embossing Powder and punch - MS; Twine - PTI; Pop-Up Tape - 3M

Well you prove that long and tall cards don't have to be cute - I love this layout and design, so my kinda colours!
Thanks so much for playing along with us on A Passion for Papertrey!

What a pretty card. The colours go so well together and the inside stamping looks so good.
