this is much, MUCH more stash-centric than it looks, because all of those gorgeous diecut colorburst leaves were leftover from an autumnal make-and-take i devised for last november's anniversary party at paper anthology* and i just stumbled upon them while cleaning out for this year's garage sale. and sort of re-fell in love with them. because the combination of saturated color, vintage paper, and a tiny bit of sparkly just *always* looks good to me. the rest of the card is pretty simple, so the leaves can really be the star of the show. i've attached them quite loosely, to make it look like they just sort of drifted in, on the wind. a look i find much more appealing on a card than all over my yard, but you cannot argue with mother nature, lol.
since this week's theme on the simon says stamp wednesday challenge blog is "ANYTHING GOES" i am linking up with those fine folks!
