FM78 Falling for Twine

This week on the Friday Mashup, Lisa's got us thinking about Fall.

Photo Source
So here is the "Mashup" Challenge:
  1. Make a "Fall Leaves" themed project.
  2. Or Make a project with "Twine".
  3. Or "Mash it Up" and create a "Fall Leaves Themed project using Twine".

I used the same layout I used on the pumpkin card earlier this week.... it's a good one!  Somehow I feel there's a little too much pattern going on with this card, but I'm sticking with it.  I pulled out my retired hemp twine... how I love that stuff!

This card is also a submission for this month's Creative Crew color-focus and holiday-focus challenges on Splitcoaststampers.  Hmmm, I just realized I was thinking about stitching around the border of this card... oh well.

Stamps: French Foliage; Paper: Crumb Cake, Soft Suede, Very Vanilla, Comfort Cafe DSP; Ink: More Mustard, Cajun Craze, Cherry Cobbler, Always Artichoke, Soft Suede; Accessories: Clear embossing powder, Sponges, Hemp twine, Circles #2 die, Perfect Pennants die, Big Shot, Dimensionals.

Thanks for stopping by!

Those leaves are fantastic I had to make the photo bigger to see if they were real! Love the use of the DSP too.

What a beautiful leaf! It looks like it just fell from the tree! Love that twine treatment too. What a great way to fasten it. Hope to remember that.
