Using some freebies

I had some freebies off a magazine recently but have only just got round to using them.  I wanted to acheive a warm indian summer type of feel to this card to match the stamps and embossing folder. I used an orangey cs and stamped in versamark round the edge of the bottom piece then heat embossed with clear and then rubbed an caramel ink round the edge.  Inked round the edge of the dry embossed panel too before matting that onto some darker orange cs then finished off with a sentiment stamped in caramel ink and used the cricut to cut out the sentiment and matching mat. A bit different for me but I do like it.
