Leaf Flower - C4C #59

Hello, everyone! Are you ready for another Crazy Girls challenge? Today the amazing Silke is challenging us to make a fall card. I can SO do that, LOL!

I'm using MFT's Framed Greetings set and die and the sentiment is from Clearly Sentimental About Harvesting. I so love that quote. And it's so true. I decided to use the quote as my theme and literally create a flower from leaves--leaves die cut with MFT's Sheltering Tree Die-namics set (temporarily unavailable). I cut the leaves from my favorite fall patterned paper, Basic Grey's Indian Summer, and created a flower by overlapping and layering the leaves. I kinda like how it turned out. I adhered it on top of some swirly bling and added a yellow rhinestone to the center. The border was done using MFT's Open Scallop Border Die-namics die.

Here's the inside with another sentiment from Clearly Sentimental About Harvest.

Sooooo, NOW, be sure to check out the samples by the rest of my crazy, I mean the Crazy 4 Challenges team ;-)

THEN, you know what to do--we'd love to have you come along and play with us. Just do your thing with the challenge and link it to Mr. Linky on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog. Please link directly to your project. And, if you upload to a public gallery, please use the key word C4C59.
