Another busy week,  Not alot of play time  but  do have one gorgeous card to share with you. 

I really like Fall because of the beautiful, colorful leaves, especially the red ones.  I wish they would keep all year, but I guess I would not appreciate them as much.  Anyway, here in Chicagoland we have had cold, windy rain, so our leaves are mostly on the ground.  But thanks to our artistic Jess and Steph,  Floppy Latte badge to left, I found a way to capture their beauty all year round.  

And so easy...  Take yellow cardstock, yep I said yellow.  Print the digi Red Oak multiple times.  Cut leaves out.  Sponge with More Mustard, (StampinUp)  or use Tim Holtz Straw.  Then I shadowed with Tim Holtz  Festive Berries, Forest Moss and Gathered Twigs.  Play with different colors and have fun.  Then spritz with water or pearl mist until wet, crinkle up into a tight ball, I let the ball sit for 2 minutes, then CAREFULLY open the ball and let the paper completely dry.
