Lots of Leaves

Hello Everyone!  Right now, here in the midwest, we've got leaves everywhere.  They are the most gorgeous fall colors and I can't seem to get enough of using these colors in my stamping.  A friend of mine has his birthday later on this month, so I thought I would make his card using fall leaves as my inspiration.  The base of the card is out of the Autumn Spice dsp found in the Holiday Mini catalog.  I cut the cajun craze layer out with a Nestie and stamped it with the words and splatter from the French Foliage set.  To give it a bit more oomph, I outlined it with a gold paint pen.  I think it really shows off the shape of that paper.  The next layer is stamped with various leaves of that set in different fall colors of cajun craze, more mustard and pear pizzaz.  The leaves on the front panel are from Leaf Prints by PTI.  I love separate vein stamp that adds the detail.  Some gold nailhead brads and linen thread finish this one today.  Thanks for stopping by.
