Another fabulous sketch by Diva Maureen for us to play with this week. After a brief hiatus from leaf cards, my addiction overcame me and I had to make another one.
I just love working with the colours of fall...happy sigh... :) This Lime Twist DP was perfect for the middle panel and I crimped the sides for a bit of texture and added my beloved maple leaf in lieu of the smaller circle. Was wishing I had some cream grosgrain or natural twill ribbon instead of the satin ribbon as they would have fit the earthy feel of this card a bit better, but no such luck. On to my shopping list they go!
So nice to be all caught up on my October Verve sketches :) I'll be working for hubby again in November so I'm enjoying my time in my craft area as much as I can along with getting things ready for fall inside and out (eg: trip to laundromat to wash all the summer comforters in their extra large washers/dryers, hoses brought in for the winter, plants in the yard trimmed down, annual flowers pulled out etc.). Sure the leaves I am so in love with on my cards will begin to fall on my lawn soon enough and not be such a pleasure too!
