A Circle for Fall

It's "Fall in the Circle" at Creative Corner, so I had to try it!   My fall circle hanging began as an empty CD, covered in a cardstock circle which was dry-embossed in the autumn folder and highlighted with white pigment ink.  An application of GooseBumps added a pretty glaze. A larger circle was added to the CD to provide an edge for the leaves.    Tim's mini Tattered Leaves die was used to cut two kinds of leaves:  one set dry embossed and painted with Perfect Pearls and one set colored with Distress Stains.  The hanger is a wide mushroom-colored ribbon.

I am thrilled to learn that my Fall Circle was chosen as the challenge winner! Thanks to Creative Corner.
