Harvest of Blessings

Just popping in to share a card that I made with MFT's Layered Leaves.
They were out of stock for a while and when I finally got my hands on them, 
it was just in time for an autumnal card.

I brushed several colors of Peerless watercolors on watercolor card stock
and after it was dried, I die cut several sizes of leaves and spattered them
with white ink. Kraft card stock was stamped with the wood plank stamp in
Versamark ink then cut with the rectangle element from Blueprints 25.

The panel was adhered to a kraft card base and I adhered the leaves with glue dots. 
For a bit of interest, I popped out some leaf segments and left some intact.
The sentiment is from Harvest Mouse and a few enamel dots finished off the card.

I started off thinking about making a wreath after seeing the awesome
Virginia Lu's wreath here, but went with a...you guessed it...deconstructed one!

Thanks so much for stopping by!


  1. Your deconstructed wreath just makes my heart skip a beat, Donna!!! I've had my MFT leaves for some time - they've never looked this gorgeous! May just be following your lead, sweetie ...

  2. Reminds me of the leaves I love to go walking in and to hear the crunchy sound beneath my feet. Pretty card.

  3. Donna your leaves are absolutely stunning!

  4. Gorgeous card...love teh way the leaves stand out against the base and the dimension with the adhesive. BTW I noticed that these dies have pieces that come out. What is your trick to make sure the leaves stay intact? jeandonny2000 at hotmail dot com

  5. There's nothing more beautiful to me than autumn leaves and yours are gorgeous, Donna.

  6. LOL, your deconstructed wreath is stunning. Love the vivacity of the Peerless colours, and that you have popped out some of the leaf pieces.
