Set of Fall Leaves



As hostess again this week at CCEE Stampers, I have asked that we do Fall colors with leaves and a punched border. I have been on a Fall card making binge this week. I think this is my fourth one. But, I do love the colors and it was fun to make. This, after a failed first attempt. Do you ever make a card you just don't like at all and can't stand to upload it? I did, and finally I made another (this one) which I like much better. The other one will probably go to the trash.

I hope you'll check out the rest of the awesome cards the DT did this week at CCEE Stampers. There is a lot of pretty Fall color over there.

I want to enter this card into these challenges:

 Little Red Wagon where the challenge is Fallin' for You..they want a Fall themed card (leaves, fall colors, etc.).

Hmmm, if I don't do at least 1 trash card per week, I'm not crafting. lol Love this one, Benzi! Great punching of the leaves on that top piece. I have that set of leaf stamps and keep forgetting to dig it out and use it. :-D

Your autumn cards have all been wonderful with colorful leaves like these! I love the 4 squares, and again - I LOVE the fonts on the sentiment!

Lois said...

Great challenge this week, Brenda. Fall cards are always so pretty with the rich colors of fall foliage. This one is no exception -- just beautiful.

Sabrina said...

What a beautiful set of leaves. My favourite is the bottom left, I just love that colour. But ginkgo leaves always fascinate me. There's a small tree in a public garden near us. There must be one somewhere near work too, because I occasionally find leaves on the path but I've yet to find the tree!!

Yes, I've made my share of un-blogworthy cards! I usually ask my critics (ages 10 and 14) to confirm, then pitch it if it doesn't pass muster. ;)

I like this layout, which reminds me of an acorn and fern card (maybe I didn't get the plants right?) you did quite some time ago. Love it!
