Autumn Leaves

    Ah  the temps are cooling down, the colors are so  fluent, Yes Autumn is here . And I am loving it all , as long as I have  my blanket to curl up with ...lol
     There are a few us  that try to get  together  monthly to share ideas and products...then we all  use our  own  creativity to see what we can come  up with. We can add anything we  like from our own stash too
 This month the theme was leaves,  and  these are so beautiful...
     My first card I used a  gold-ish / bronze color  and embossed my sentiment  to  match this pretty leaf. I used a brad and gold sheer ribbon  that was offered as well  , yes  basic layers,   but I really like it...I thought the  card was  striking  without adding color to the leaf.

   And the second card  I used a more brown  colored  dp  to  high light this  beautiful brown out line of a maple leaf. I heat embossed the sentiment in the same color as the mat , and picked up colots from the dp  for my mats.
  Again simple, layers,  nothing added here ... But with so many birthdays  coming  up, I was happy to get a couple of cards  ready to go. I still have several items to play with and I hope to get a few more cards  finished...
    I hope you all are enjoying  these days, Autumn, Indian Summer  or  what ever  you are  having. As always, thanks for stopping  by... I do  appreciate all of you and your  sweet words...
   Til next time, Happy Autumn and good bye : )

  1. Both of these cards are lovely, Soni. I LOVE the first one. They may be basic, but sometimes that's all you need to really make it. I think the first one has a more elegant feel and that's why it caught my attention. Both would be great male cards - which are so hard to do sometimes without doing the same old images. Hugs!

  2. Both of them are so pretty Soni. Great job. I really like the second one with the pretty dp behind the leaf and how you picked up the dark blue for the mat. Lovely.

      it is funny how both of these could be for a masculine card but all of my upcoming birthdays are for women...
