Now that Halloween is done and over with it's time to look ahead to Thanksgiving. To me cards celebrating fall and cards celebrating Thanksgiving are very often the same thing because the two things call to mind the same warm color palette. I love the colors of fall and Thanksgiving happens to be my favorite holiday so when I saw the fall challenge at Cupcake Inspirations I wanted to play along. I dipped into my stash for some leafy die cuts so that I could also play along with The Cutting Edge Challenge and also managed to squeeze in the sketch at CAS(E) This Sketch.
Give me a colorful leaf and I'm a happy camper. And if those leaves have a stitched detail on them then I love them even more! I added a few branches and another round leafy die cut to complement the leaves. Once I had everything roughly assembled I thought the background was awfully plain so I added a few grungy splatters. Die cuts make everything easy peasy!
Thanks for stopping by!
