Autumn Leaves

Pin It

Hi everyone,

I hope your day was as good as mine turned out to be. I went to the home my mother lives in and took her out for a walk. I was a bit nervous because the last time I took her she had a tumble and broke the knuckles on her right hand. Luck was with us and she had no stumbles.  I visit a lot and never see anyone that walks around the large area around the home. I then decided to try Yogi off leash for his walk. That made me a bit apprehensive but decided I needed to start trusting this little fellow. He was wonderful. He went so far then would look to see where I was then came running back to me. I was sure doing my happy dance many times today for his accomplishments. LOL! It doesn't take much to make me happy. Mom got such a kick out of his playful antics.

At Just A Stampin' this week the challenge is signs of fall leaves. Well I had lots of time to think of something but my mind just kept coming up blank. Then I went through a DCWV Autumn book and took a page from there. It had lots of sparkle, and leaves. I thought it was so cute and would make a great fall card. I then added an orange backing to it with and orange ribbon. The sentiment is from stampendous Autumn stamps. I then cut 3 leaves out of the flower shoppe cartridge and colored them up with copics. I popped them up with dimensional's and added glitter to the tops. The inside is decorated to match the front panel. I am adding this card into these challenges.

I really love the way you tie your card together. I have never put the cardstock on the top and bottom, I am going to have to try that!

I love the realistic look of your leaves!!
