Leaf Thanks...Tag You're It Challenge #31




 Hello!

Welcome to Tag, You're It! Challenge #31, where my incredibly talented DT and I are inviting you to draw inspiration from this gorgeous, shimmery, classy leaf tag designed by our sweet, creative Jeanne:

Isn't that leaf stunning, with the red/gold combination, set against the vibrant orange?  The pop of blue in the button and string...oh my!  Jeanne's eye for colour pairings is absolutely amazing!

Want to see more *amazing*?  Then, head over to gaze at the fabulous interpretations created by our talented guest designer, Michele Henderson, and my team mates: Anja, Erin, Donna, Kara Lynne, Tracey and Marybeth.

My card is *not* a shimmery gold/red translation; rather, I brought out my much neglected distress inks and markers to sponge up a leaf die cut.  A few sequins (which I don't use often, as you tell by my wonky placement),  a Your Next Stamp sentiment and...voila!  The journey into the fall crafting season begins....



Hope to see your tag in the gallery!

Thanks so much for dropping by; your visit and comments add sparkle to my day!
Hugs,

  7. The sequins totally work with your beautifully colored leaf! Honestly, at first glance I thought that you had used an actual 'for real life" leaf! Great rustic piece of twine and love the colored reinforcement.
