Autumn Leaves

If you're here to see my cards for The Craft's Meow Preview, please click HERE or scroll down one post.


Hi everyone - it's time for another Simon Says Stamp challenge and it's a subject that makes me smile, as it is what I love about fall - the beautiful  autumn leaves.  You can use any product you'd like this week - there are some really beautiful papers and stamps this year to choose from!  Here's my card:

SSS Autumn Leaves, Oct 24

When I saw the Shabby Chic Autumn Leaves set from Just Rite, I had to have them.  They are the perfect size for a card, and besides the beautiful leaves, either in music or text, there are several sentiments, and some buttons and post marks too!  A very good value, in my opinion!  Besides this set, I used some papers from 2 new 6" pads: BoBunny's Apple Cider (the striped paper) and Very Vintage Double Dot Designs (2 of the leaves).  The other papers are from my collection of autumn ones.  Other supplies include buttons from October Afternoon's 9 to 5 collection, and some natural twine.  Here's a closer shot of the leaves, showing the music motif on the leaves:

Once again, Heidi has set aside a $50.00 gift voucher at the Simon Says Stamp Store for the random winner of this challenge.


Please visit the Simon Says Stamp Challenge blog to see all the beautiful autumn cards that the Design Team and our guest Laura have made.

I'd like to add this to the Ribbon Girl October color challenge, as it reflects the beautiful wreath inspiration they gave us:

  3. Love those leaves, love those buttons, and most of all I love those colours! This is a magnificent card Lin! I have been dying to do something in these colours as we do not have the real pleasure of fall here, so maybe I should do something for this challenge! Thanks for the inspiration!
