Golden Leaves

Hi Everyone.
Just thought I'd show you a card which came together really quickly but I think looks quite effective. Over at Scrapology they have just posted their December Challenge to make a card using leaf shapes and colours and A Trip Down Memory Lane blog also has a challenge inspired by N for Nature so this was what I came up with. I had some Starform peel offs which I decided to try and create a wreath with. I used backing papers from K&Co's Tapestry collection which are lovely, rich, jewel like colours and then cut out each leaf and arranged it on my card. I then added a large bow at the top, decorated the inside and finished it off with a little sentiment that I created on my computer. I know I have used Autumn type colours but think this would make a great birthday card or even Golden Anniversary card - it just looks pretty! Change the colours and you've got a Christmassy wreath. I'm not always a fan of peel offs but these large ones worked well.
Anyway, hope you like it. Thanks for looking!
Best wishes and bye for now
