Autumn Leaves

Oh, how I love the autumn! The trees are amazing! So pretty...it makes my drive to and from work so much more pleasant!

Here's an example of something similar to what I see while driving around our area~

Stunning, isn't it?! And so, imagine my excitement to see that the challenge over at Make My Monday this week is to create a project with the theme of Autumn Leaves! Oh, I was so excited!

Now, I have been trying to create more than one card for each challenge, but I have not had time this week. Why? Because I have been asked by the owner of Make My Monday to join their design team as a guest for the month of November! So, I've been very busy getting my cards ready for that! I hope that you'll join us--it is going to be a FABULOUS theme! :)

Well, anywho, here is my card~

I dug around in my odds and ends box and found some fun accessories to add--a nice large paper polka dotted bracket and a fabulous scallop circle--perfect for stamping my autumn leaf on! Did you notice the glitter? It's a bit hard to see...

Here's a close up of the leaf so you can see it better~

And since we are close here in the USA to our Thanksgiving holiday, and since I have joined the Gratitude Challenge, I used a thanksgiving sentiment.

Here's a close up of the sentiment~

What do you think? I think that the patterned paper mimics the vibrant colors of autumn leaves. I'm quite pleased with the overall results!

Thank you for stopping by--you make my day when you pop over! :) I hope you join us at Make My Monday! Happy stamping! :)

Hi Mynnette, just catching up with my comments! Really beautiful card as always. Love the combination of papers and the leaf panel and embellishing look lovely.
