Clean & Simple 115

I sometimes have a hard time with cas cards. This one is pretty clean and simple, but probably not as clean and simple as it could be - I just couldn't help myself. I've been playing with my new (to me anyway) PTI toys. The leaf is from a set called Leaf Prints that comes with a solid stamp, a line stamp and a you can also purchase the die cuts to match! This new trend in the industry is so wonderful, but it's making me crazy - so much more stuff I have to have!

Here's the sketch:

Here's my card:

Card base is the new Pinefeather from PTI with an embossed layer of More Mustard and some Pinefeather double-stitched ribbon and a couple of blingy thingies that I got on a trip to Alaska several years ago. The sentiment is from Take Three: Fall, also from PTI and new to me. As much as I hate all the sneak peeks and previews, after it is all said and done and I've thought about it for a couple weeks, I am usually purchasing things that I really want. After all, if I still want them after being teased and bombarded, well they better be special and this Leaf Prints set is destined to become a "go to" fall set for me, it's delightful!

Thanks for visiting!
