I had so much fun making this card I just had to share! I have had that bag of leaves from Lawn and Garden cut and colored for several weeks and just never knew what to do with it. Then Vicki had her sketch challenge on StampTV and I started playing around with that. I remembered the bag with leaves and wala - a card was born!
I created the background with distress inks and sponges and then spritzed it a bit with water. I have to admit that the first one I made did not turn out as well and is now on the scrap heap!
I wanted to use the rake and decided to use silver embossing on it and cut it very carefully. Added some more leaves from the bag for underneath it. The acorn and sentiment is from A Year of Leaves and the pumpkin was from Signs of Autumn. The leaves under the acorn were punched (MS punch) from scraps in the scrap heap! The ribbon was still from some Stampin Up ribbon that I had.
There you have it - a fun card of falling leaves! Thanks for the visit and Bless You!
