The challenge to-day was just fall leaves which leaves lots of opportunity for interpretation. I have had this little bag image for decades..probably one of the first stamps I ever purchased and I think I have used it twice! LOL I paper pieced the burlap part and coloured the rest with prisma pencils and OMS. In the post the other day this fabulous junk mail arrived with really close-up photos of leaves. I used two sizes of punches then glued them randomly on the bag. The distressing uses Mr Holtz' ink and the tiny crackle is from PSX (another oldie). The greeting is from flourishes.

BEAUTIFUL card, Sue. Love your autumn bag done with the burlap and patterned patches. The leaf spray decoration is gorgeous! Super recycling to create your tiny little leaves. The soft shading brings it all together.

That is a beautiful stamp and I love the way yo paper pieced it! I love how you used your junk mail too, punching all those leaves! I love the leaves around the sentiment too! This is a very professional looking card!

Mrs. Noofy, I love how your style has evolved! I love this card, too. It's earthy, warm and just plain lovely. Nothing quirky about this one. So glad you decided to use the 1st image you purchased. I think you should use it more often.
