Fall Leaves

Happy Friday Morning!  Are you ready for the weekend?  I hope it's a great one.

So many challenges are asking for leaves, pumpkins, and fall colors.  Rightfully so since today is the first day of fall - now the weather just has to go along with it!  I made this card to enter in the My Craft Spot fall leaves challenge and also the Cooking with Cricut colors of autumn challenge.
It's a rather simple card, but this season makes me think of life's simple pleasures.

All of the papers are from the DCWV autumn stacks (3 different ones).  The pumpkin is cut from glittered paper, but it's difficult to tell.  The cut is from the Thanksgiving Seasonal Cartridge and the ribbon is Bazzill Basics.  I used the MS leaves border punch and  my 3-D gel pens to color the leaves on the inside.  The sentiment is from the My Craft Spot Happy Fall set that I won last week (woohoo!)

I'm off to another class at The Paper Garden.  Today's class is Christmas in September.  The gals at this boutique design with an Asian flair and also use lots of sparkle.  I'm really looking forward to learning more about their glittering techniques so it should be a fun morning.

Enjoy your day and thanks for stopping by.
Hugs and Happy Crafting,

What a pretty, pretty card! I am so impressed that you were able to cut that glitter paper into the pumpkin. I always ruin one or two before I can get my blade setting! Thank you so much for playing along with us at

Super card, Larelyn! The leaf border is just perfect with this! I've never heard of 3-D gel pens. I'm going to have to investigate!
Thanks so much for playing along at My Craft Spot!
