Thankful for... favorite month! The morning air is beginning to be crisp, the afternoon temps are an amazing 72 degrees! And, best of all, leaves are beginning to turn! I absolutely love the amazing beauty of fall leaves :)

Today's card is a CASE of a fall wreath card created by fellow demonstrator, Ann Schach. But I wanted to use my Sizzix Big Shot & the #2 Leaves die cut to see what I could come up with. I began with Stampin' Up! gold cardstock, die cut the leaves, & ran them through the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder. Not enough for me...I then ran a piece of Pear Pizzaz cardstock throught the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder. Then sponged on lots of color, chocolate Chip, Old Olive, & Cajun Craze. The gold leaves were sponged with Cajun Craze. I arranged leaves in wreath, adhered with Stampin' Dimensionals (my #1 must have item). Assembled card, & stamped sentiment from Thankful For stamp set, and added Certainly Celery satin ribbon.

I took a couple of photos so you can see the dimension of this card. Very fun!!!

Here are a couple of additional ideas using the #2 leaves die cut. The Silver leaves are created from furnace tape! So, they have a sticky layer on the back. Would be great on a card!

And... how about fabric! I picked up this fabric this morning from the fabric store. You can't see from the picture, but the little polk-a-dots are shiny copper on chocolate brown. They will be beautiful on a project!

Hope you liked today's project! Come back & visit soon!!!
