It is Fall, so you get another leaf card!!! I started out using the retired colors of Baked Brown Sugar and Crisp Cantaloupe. But the Crisp Cantaloupe just wasn't bright enough for what I was thinking about. So I switched to Pumpkin Pie with the Baked Brown Sugar. I die cut a Pumpkin Pie leaf and sponged over it with Baked Brown Sugar ink, crumpled it up and flattened it out. It looked good. After stamping the white cardstock using a stamp from the Perpetual Calendar set and a background stamp from Happy Watercolor I adhered the leaf. I stamped the sentiment from For All Things in Pumpkin Pie and sponged the edges in Baked Brown Sugar, adhering it using dimensionals over some linen thread. A few Baked Brown Sugar sequins should have been enough, but no, I had to add the Clear Wink of Stella glitter. I wish I would not have done that. It pooled on a couple of the folds from the crumpling and I just am not pleased with how it looks on this particular card. Have a great day and find yourself a little stampin' time!
