This fall card is for two challenges. Our queen for this week is peeps(Polly). She has a wonderful unique style of stamping. Her cards tell a story. She is always there for everyone with kind remarks. Here is the card I chose to case in her honor. http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ga...;ppuser=135501
I changed the shape of the die and leaves instead of flowers.
Jeanie gave us a challenge to use leaves on our cards. My inspiration is looking out any of my windows this week. Our leaves are at their peak. Earlier than ususal. Beauty in every direction.
I used my cricut to cut out my leaves and flowers. Sponged them and added a touch of gold. Added a gold twine. tfl
Congrats! Queen Polly. Enjoy your deserved limelight!

What a beautiful card, Linda. The cluster of flowers and leaves are so rich in their fall colors and the cord bow is perfect. A rich and full card without being overdone. I love it. Right into my favs.

Thud....Linda, I could not hit "fav" fast enough! Simply gorgeous, warm and wonderful. Your framing and leaves are an absolute delight, and that sentiment so touching. I love your style, and how you honored this sweet Queen! Hugs...
