Seize the Birthday - Lots of Leaves

Happy Thursday friends.  It is time for a new challenge at Seize the Birthday and this time we have the "Toppings" option of using "Lots of Leaves" on your birthday project.  It is just an option and the only requirement is that if be for a birthday.  You can check out all the details over at the Seize the Birthday blog.




I used the Leafy Vine Cutting Plate by Taylored Expressions to cut the leaves from white CS and then sponged SU Really Rust, Old Olive, and Crushed Curry inks over the leaves.  I then glued it on a separate piece of white, glued that to the card base and then added a die cut frame using Mama Elephant Framed Tags.  I added the sentiment from MFT Birthday Balloon Jolinne (discontinued) on an MFT Pierced Fishtail Flags die.

I am also linking my card up at Just Us Girls Color Week.


We have lots of leafy inspiration for you over at Seize the Birthday.  Stop over and check it out.  I hope you will play along with us.

Thanks for stopping by.  I appreciate it when you take time to leave me a comment.
Have a wonderful day.

Happy Stamping,
JoAnn
