The Paper Players #172!

I just finished getting my samples ready for a Stamp Camp in December and had a little bit of free time. I browsed some challenges and saw this one at The Paper Players:

Leaves fall into the same category as butterflies for me. I just love them both. Here is my card for this week's challenge of leaves:

I used the "Autumn Accents Die" to cut all of my leaves. So easily done when you have a "Big Shot" to cut what you need. I also cut the word thankful using the "Expressions Thinlits Dies" One little trick I learned when using these thin dies is to use a layer of waxed paper between the thinlit and your cardstock. The wording pops out quite easily this way:

I added a small string of "Pearl Jewels" to one leaf and a few single pearls along the wording. I hope your weekend is going well and that you come back to visit tomorrow!

Thanks for stopping by to visit!
