Make It Monday #180: Paper Weaving

We have been having some great fall days here.  Sunny and crisp, makes you think of apple picking and pie baking and, of course pie eating. Well, I did bake some apples with cinnamon and served them with cool whip ( fat free).  Good, but not the same as apple pie a la mode!  Oh well, I just keep making these cards and it keeps me out of the refrigerator.  Sometimes!

Make it Monday has a challenge using paper weaving and I have use some vellum that I had.  The vellum has an embossed design in it and I colored it with some fall colors.  Yellow, gold and green. 
Then I cut strips and did the weaving.  I mounted that on a piece of orange CS that was in my stash, and then on a base of sand. The orange was die cut with a spellbinder die with lots of holes.  So I decided to do a whip stitch around with brown embroidery floss.  I also added some gingham ribbon on the bottom.  The greeting is from PTI Wet paint II stamps set.  I was able to make a cut file with my cameo.  Do you see the blood sweat and tears on it?  Well good thing, because it did almost cry.  I spend a lot of time with tech support, but finally got it. That is another story!!!
Here is the card.
Thanks so much for stopping to look!
