Autumn Leaf Card

It's another gorgeous day here in the Wasatch Mountains.  The leaves are starting to turn and the air is warm with just that touch of Fall crispness.  It's a great time to do fall cards and luckily there are many challenges out there with that theme.  Here is a little fall beauty I made last night:


Card is 5 1/2 by 4 1/4
I enjoyed using my orange dotted paper.  I was hard pressed thinking where I would ever want to use it, but I just loved the look of it in the background.  I used the Flower Shoppe Cricut Cartridge for the maple leaf;  paper by Recollections and Kraft cardstock;  VersaMagic Ink in Gingerbread, Jumbo Java, and Spanish Olive;  Paper studio ribbon, 2 eyelets, 1 button, and my own digi sentiments.    I am entering this card in the following challenges:
Have had fun this week crafting and actually got three cards made, YAH I need them in October! I am always so happy to visit with you and I love reading your comments and getting to know all of you a little better.  Have a good weekend and be safe out there! HUGS!
