The Leaves Have It!


It is hard to believe that another week has passed and it is time for another challenge at Joan's Gardens! This week, Joan has asked us to design a card with either fall leaves or pumpkins. Since I already had my favorite leaf set on the desk from another project, I went with that.

Most of the papers are scraps from my bin. I believe the leaf squares are Susan Branch papers. I used different leaf punches that I have had forever and popped them up, then applied Champagne Stickles. I punched a scalloped oval for my sentiment, which is from Melanie Muenchinger's set called A Year of Leaves. It can be found at Gina K. Designs. The oval was punched on the scallops and ribbon was woven and tied in a bow. It's a very monochromatic card.

Okay, have to work today. Maybe I can play again later. Thanks for stopping by!

This is so pretty and done in perfect fall colors - my favorite time of the year! I love how you added just a touch of stickles to the punched leaves for interest and the way you wove the ribbon through the sentiment panel!! Beautifully done!
