And…here's my card…the colors inspired fall leaves for me!



I started with a base of Night of Navy and layered on Whisper White.  I added a strip of the Rich Razzleberry circles pattern in Polka Dot Parade DSP across the bottom.  To hide the seam, I used the Lucky Limeade Ruffled Ribbon, and added a fun SLIDE to it!  I stamped the Rich Razzleberry leaf directly on the Whisper White, then stamped a smaller one in Night of Navy and cut with the Leaves die.  I used the Woodgrain Impressions folder on the Lucky Limeade one for texture.  I tied some Lucky Limeade Bakers Twine in a bow and added it to the bottom stems.  My secret Create word is almost.  Finally, I added "Imagine the Possibilities" from Word Play in Night of Navy in the upper right corner.
