Crafting with dragonflies DT post - Challenge # 13

Good morning all,

I have some exciting news! I can now announce that I am a new member of the DT team of Crafting with Dragonflies. In case you didn't already know, this is a fantastic challenge blog where the challenges alternate between cards and other papercraft items.

This week's challenge is to make a card along the theme of Nature, leaves and/or trees, and Hilde is generously supplying a prize for the winner.

This is what I created:

Hubby suggested the message on the inside of the card should read: "...To sweep up these blimmin' leaves", lol.

The recipe is as simple as can be... I drew a tree trunk and fussy-cut it before sticking it on the card to give it a little extra dimension. I then die-cut the leaves using the Spellbinders "foliage" die, using several different seasonal colours (a great way to use up some of those little pieces of leftover cardstock!). I drew on a couple of swirls to suggest movement, and finished off with the sentiment, which was a magazine freebie.

Why not hop on over to the Crafting with Dragonflies blog to see what the other DT have created?

Have a fantabulous day!
