Fall Into Autumn

Happy Saturday, my friends!

Today I'm sharing an extra "just for fun" card.

This is made using one of the free digital images from Gecko Galz.
I printed it and then cut it out with my Cricut Explore Air. 
I colored it, and then backed it with a dark night sky colored paper, cut in a circle.


It's such a great tree!
I have a number of leaf punches but they were all too big.
So I decided this heart punch would make great little leaves.
I punched them out in several Fall colors.
I folded and curled them, and adhered them all in place.
Finally, I mounted it on a round card base.


Here's a closer look at all the little heart leaves.


Materials Used:
Papers: Recollections - Cardstock;
Image: Gecko Galz Freebie;
Color: Spectrum Noir Markers;
Cut: Cricut Explore Air;
Die: WRMK - Nesting Circles;
Punch: Martha Stewart - Hearts.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
Since this is an Fall themed post, I thought I would share a peek of our Fall with you.

My Back yard on October 5th:



The snow was so wet and heavy that it completely flattened our huge lilac hedge.


The snow is all gone now...and it looks more Fall-ish.
I'm sure it will be back very soon! :o)

    you've had so much snow already, but the trees look beautiful. I'm sure you'll have plenty more snow !
