Autumn Tweet Leaves

There's a great challenge that I haven't done for ages...shame on me, but today I have made a card that I think fits the bill quite nicely.  The challenge blog is Make My Monday and the challenge is Autumn with Kraft and twine.

I made the background with kraft card which I stamped with an oak leaf from my Lovely as A Tree, a favourite set -first use of the leaf though. Then I stamped the Tweet Leaves image using a variety of autumnal coloured inks, I sponged the edge and mounted onto the Kraft background. I stamped a little 'for you' sentiment and cut it out in the shape of a tag.  Stamping some more leaves, this time from Autumn Days I fussy cut them and popped them up on dimensionals.  Finally I added a twine bow and yes it is orange twine, straight from the garden centre. I used Naturals White card stock for the card base and all the stamped images - it's the best  thing in my stash right now! I will also enter this card in The Cupboard Trilogy Challenge, as over there the theme for November is Autumn or Halloween.
November 19th Update - just looked over at Make My Monday and my card has been picked for Top 3! Chuffed!
