Falling Leaves

I love the colours of fall and have a tiny obsession with all things leafy so a leafy card for the Hero Arts Everything Autumn challenge and the Caardvarks Clean & Simple Challenge is a perfect fit.

I stamped the leaves and sentiment on cream coloured vellum and overlayed this onto cardstock stamped with a blue flourish background and added some ribbon. I wanted to keep it simple so the colourful beauty of the leaves is the focus.

























Thanks for stopping by!

  1. I adore your card, Sue, so very pleasing with the 2 layers and the mix of the flourish behind your yummy leaves (I'm a leaf lover too!)

  2. This card is so elegant! That's how I would describe your style too, very elegant. You always add just the perfect element, like the vellum here. I love how the leaves appear to be slowing fluttering to the ground and those gorgeous fall colors are too gorgeous!
    blessings!
