Hero Arts Grateful Leaves



The challenge from LeAnne at The Paper Players is:



For my Clean and Simple fall card I decided to use Cheery Lynn's new Acorn's and Leaves die set. 

I picked some fall plaid paper and cut out a CL stitched rectangle. Then I chose a few colors from the plaid and cut out my leaves.




I tied them together with some twine and adhered them onto the plaid rectangle. Then I added a sentiment from Hero Arts called "Grateful Leaves"at the bottom. I left lots of white space, and added no extra embellishments, even though I really,really wanted to add some enamel dots.....LOL!




I hope you will join us!






Paper: SU, Lawn Fawn
Ink: SU black
Stamps: Hero Arts Grateful leaves
Dies: Cheery Lynn stitched rectangles, Acorns and Leaves
other: twine

Laurie, this is so pretty with the leaves matching the colors in the plaid paper (which I think I have). Thanks for sharing this.

Absolutely stunning with that pattern paper behind those gorgeous leaves. An awesome card design.

I like the inclusion of the blue leaves as that's unusual in an autumn card. It stands out beautifully against the plaid. I love the wide border of white that stops the colour and pattern from being overwhelming and the twine tie is just perfect!
