Colors and Patterns Challenge

Hello!  The challenge at The Shabby Tea Room for week #262 is Colors and Patterns  shown in the graphic on the right.   When I saw the colors, I thought of a Thanksgiving card and pulled out polka dot and chevron patterns to use on rectangles --the shape inspired by the shapes of the bottles. The pine cones in the photo reminded me of an Embossing Folder Pine Branches by Darice.
I began the card by embossing a Ecru Glossy card stock and inking the raised designs with Memento Rich Cocoa and Tangelo inks. I cut the strips of Pattern Paper from Echo Park and created the chevron pattern by embossing a strip of the Ecru glossy paper and inking the surface. I fussy cut another pine cone using the EF and attached to the lower corner.  I cut the words with Cheery Lynn Dies to finish the card.  I think I managed to capture some of the colors and patterns from the inspiration.
