New Seize The Birthday challenge - Leaves

Happy Thursday everyone.  It is time for a new Seize the Birthday challenge and the "toppings" option this week is leaves.
Here is my card and I chose to use the "toppings" option of leaves to make my fall birthday card.
I used SU Very Vanilla and More Mustard CS.   The DSP is from some retired SU paper packs.   I also used the retired French Foilage stamp set in some fall colors that matched the papers, Old Olive, Soft Suede and Pumpkin Pie inks. I stamped each leaf and then sponged different inks over them, fussy cut them and mounted them to the sentiment panel.    The sentiment is from SU Simply Sketched, stamped in Soft Suede, cut with Spellbinders Classic Ovals & matted with a Scalloped Oval. The banners are cut with MFT Fishtail Flags dies.  I added some rhinestones in the bottom right corner.

Now hop over to Seize the Birthday and see what my teammates did with this challenge.  I hope you play along with us.

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a wonderful weekend.
Happy Stamping,
