Bits & Pieces of Lovely Leaves

Hi there!  Recently, I made this card using many pieces from a $1.00 Scrap Bag that I bought a while back from my Stampin' Up! demonstrator.  I love how they all came together for a pretty autumn birthday:


The embossed leaves from Autumn Splendor came as you see here.  The die cut circle in a text pattern was in the scrap bag, as were the skinny strips of autumn patterned paper.

I added some sequins (including some from Pretty Pink Posh), and a seam binding bow from Martha Stewart.


This was easy-peasy to put together.  I love those scrap bags!



Stamps: Autumn Splendor - SU Paper: Fine Linen - Papertrey Ink; patterns, text, blue, orange, brown - SU Ink: Versamark - Tsukineko;  Frayed Burlap - Ranger Fibers: rust seam binding - Martha Stewart Accessories & Tools: Matte Gold sequins - MJ Trimming; Sand sequins - Pretty Pink Posh; circle die

I am always in awe when I discover one of your "scrap-bag-cards". You are fab with mixing and matching. A bargain to get and you use these scraps so well. This is a lovely fall card; love the embossed leaves and colors. And last but certainly not least your bow...that's your signature of elegance that I love to see.
