Autumn Leaves

A quick card to enter in three challenges today!  I'm usually doing good to get something entered in one challenge, so three was a challenge to ME!!


I used my only leaf set of stamps I own - from CTMH.  I really need to do something about that though like maybe go on a shopping spree!  Sounds good, right!  The background around the leaf was done with Flores Suaves from SU.  All was completed using Kraft, Cajun Craze, and white card stock.  Now, you see those three little "things" above the sentiment.....I call them "things" since I really don't know exactly what you call them.  They're not gems or pearls, but they stick on - so, "things"!  LOL!  Next you're probably asking why I put them above the sentiment and not below.  I mean everyone puts things like this below, not above.  But, I always say - dare to be different! 


I'll enter this in the challenges at CAS(e) This Sketch (sketch), CAS-ual Friday (Kraft), and Simon Says Stamp Challenge (Leaf).


Thanks for stopping by.........

This is a nice card Lynn and I can see it being suitable for so many occasions. I really like that leaf... all the veins and the mottled look. The 'wings' are very pretty and the colour matches perfectly.

Fabulous card Lynn! Those little Dew Drops look fabulous above your sentiment! Fab fall card! Great job with the sketch!

You are so funny, Lynn and I know how you feel about entering challenges. For that exact same reason, I hardly bother my brains. Lol. But having said that I have entered my latest card in 4-5 challenges and after finishing all the entering and stuff, I felt like I had achieved a big landmark. I marvel at people who ente so many challenges.
Anyway your card is so soft and warm... The things (as you call them) look very nice over the sentiment. I like your daring and applaud it whole heartedly. Lol. And the font of the sentiment is so much like real handwriting which I love.

Love,
M

This is so pretty. I love the fall colors. I have that same stamp set and it is my favorite leaf set. Gorgeous colors and I like your "things" and think they look great above the sentiment.

Absolutely beautiful! Love the gorgeous color you used. Why do you need more leaf stamps when you have such beauties! But, yes, you should go on a stamping spree!

Oh Lynn this is so elegant - and why not put your 'things' about the sentiment - they look good there :-)
