Metal leaf card

Here is my card for a card swap from a stamping group I belong to.  I'm in love with the metal sheets and wanted to start using them in my projects. For this card I used Gold and Orange metal sheets, Silver Glimmer Paper and Early Espresso Core'dinations Card Stock. On the sliver leaf, using a Stampin' Sponge I applied Early Espresso ink to tone down the sparkle effect a little. I also used the Early Espresso Ink on the Very Vanilla Framelit.
After cutting them out using the Autumn Accents Bigz Die and the Big Shot Die Cut Machine, I ran them through the Vintage Wallpaper Folder. On the acorn, I used Stampin' Sanding System to create an antiqued look.

For the banner I used more gold metal sheet and ran the sheet through the Big Shot using the Bitty Banners Framelits.
The sentiment came from Teeny Tiny Whises Set. The Word Window and Modern Label punches work perfect for this.
To finish off the look, I chose 3/8" Very Vanilla  Taffeta Ribbon. I used my glue gun and attached a Vintage Faceted Designer Buttons topped with a Large Pearl from the Basic Jewels.

The card base is Early Espresso and the second layer is Brushed Gold card stock. 

I hope the gals in the card swap will like my card. I can't wait to see what everyone else did.
Happy Stampin'
