A Grateful Heart - Fall Card

I do believe Fall is finally here!  I leave for work very early and lately it is still dark when I leave the house and quite chilly.  As I was driving home yesterday, I really noticed that the leaves on the trees were beginning to change.  I love watching the trees change color.  Everyday it seems a little more vibrant.

One of my new stamps has leaves on it and I've played with a few times. But this time I wanted to try a clean & simple card to accent the leaves.  I left out all my pattern paper (and not using my Flirty paper pack was hard to do!).   I used White Daisy Cardstock for my base and added the cut out leaves I stamped with Autumn Terracotta and Olive inks.



Of course - what is a Fall Card without a little Burlap Ribbon (Z1760)!  I added Twine from our Harvest Assortment (Z1751).   The sentiment  "A Grateful Heart"  is from the stamp set Abundance (D1519).

Stamps Used:
Fall Harvest C1504
                                                   

Abundance (D1519)

I'm submitting this to 4 Crafty Chicks in their Thanksgiving Challenge,  Need a little FALL inspiration?  Be sure to check out their challenge for more great ideas!
