Leaf Greeting

Monday has come and gone.  Mine was a bit busier than usual and, thus, the lack of chatter from me here on the blog!  I hope yours was as enjoyable as a Monday can be!

Today is the introduction of a new cue word over at CASology!  This week, we’re focusing on the word LEAF.  With the leaves turning all different colors around here, I’m definitely in a leafy mood…whatever that could mean.  Absolutely loving the beauty of autumn!

For a “leaf” card, I chose to use an SU set I’ve had in my stash for quite a while:  Betsy’s Blossoms.  I hadn’t thought of using the leaf stem by itself before.  Usually, I pair it with the bird in the set.  I love it when the cue words for the challenge encourage me to use images in new ways!

Stamps:  SU, Verve (sentiment)

This is as simple as it gets!  I stamped the leaf image in the lower right corner of a kraft card, the sentiment above and below the stem and added a cluster of gemstones to finish things off.  Quick.  Simple.  Clean.

Be sure and visit the blogs of the rest of the design team and our guest designer this week:  Bridget Finlay!

Have a terrific Tuesday!

    This is beautiful, Melissa! I love how it's all understated – the card stock, the image, the sentiment, and the tiny bling.
