Bouquet of Leaves

Welcome!  Fall is in full swing with leaves falling quicker than we can rake! I love making fall cards, I guess because I love the richness of fall colors.  I was playing with some older leaf stamps and fall colors on green Vellum and White CS.  On my card I used a panel of Vellum stamped with oak leaves and some fussy cut leaves on Vellum and CS.  I gathered the fussy cut leaves into a "bouquet" adding some ribbon snippets and a twig.  I assembled the card with a card base of Fresh Asparagus CS and a Pattern Paper from The Simple Things pad both from GKD.  On the Vellum panel I attached the bouquet with foam tape. The sentiment from GKD A Year of Leaves was stamped with Memento Rhubarb Stalk ink on ivory CS.
The leaf stamps used are a PSX Maple Leaf from 2000 and a Rubber Stampede Oak Leaf  which I have owned over 6 years.

Theresa, love your the colors of your leaves. The background red gingham I would have never thought to use it with the autumn leaves, but it is perfect!

Such a colorful fall-ish card, Theresa. I agree with Donna, I would not have thought to use the red gingham, but it totally works with your fall colors. It is the sentiment that I love the best... Thanks so much for playing along with Retro Rubber this challenge. We always love seeing you in our gallery!

Oh, my gosh, those leaves are beautiful! I especially love the vellum maple leaf. The red background really sets it off and pops. Wow! It's so nice to get out the older stamps to create with. Good to see this at Retro Rubber!
