Autumn LeavesFalling Leaves Die Set

My card today is an explosion of fall. {grin} I was working a mixed media project doing some acetate smooshing with Magical shakers and had a bunch of left over color on my acetate, so cleaned it up with a scrap of watercolor paper I had laying on the desk. And wouldn't you know it became my favorite piece from the whole day? I just love those happy accidents, don't you?


I used the stitched rectangle die from the Falling Leaves set to cut the sentiment panel, then stamped several of the three sizes of the leaves from Autumn Leaves and cut with the coordinating die set.  I wrapped some twine around the bottom of the rectangle, then stamped the thankful for you sentiment and highlighted with a white gel pen. I tucked my leaves in here and there and then accented with a sprinkling of Nuvo crystal drops in orange and yellow.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you have a fabulous time hopping and would love to hear what you think of the set.  I've also got another card over on the Verve Blog today.

Gorgeous fall colours and of course I am swooning at the maple leaves ♥

Love the colors. Bob Ross always talked
about happy accidents. Afraid the leaves
won't be very colorful this year - too hot
and dry. I'll enjoy them on the cards.
thanks for sharing.
