Inspired by Pinterest

Today, I have a fun fall card that I was inspired to make when I saw this photo on Pinterest:

I loved this image with the leaves being cut from the multi-coloured dough -- so fun!

I immediately thought of the Scrumptious Autumn Haze patterned paper and 
how it has the cool large variegated stripes in four different colours:

I pulled a sheet of it from the Scrumptious 6x6 paper pad and die cut it with a leaf die.


I adhered those leaves to some white card stock to make my card:


I matted the white card stock onto another piece of the mini Autumn Haze paper 
that I trimmed down to 4.25x5.5", making sure that I lined the leaves up with the matted edge.
I trimmed the sentiment out from another piece of paper from the 6x6 pad 
and trimmed off the edge with a banner die. 
I added some buttons, twine and a Scrumptious mini-brad.

To add a little dimension & interest, I curled the ends of the leaves a little with my fingers before adhering them to my card.


Thanks for looking!
