The Whisper of leaves

Hi everybody!
I'm really excited about this stamp set by Melanie Muenchinger called " A Year of Leaves". From Gina K. Designs for which I'm previewing here. In this card, I used one of the leaves from the set, colored them with copic's and cut them out. I used nestabilities to make the squares, the Pure Luxury card Stock is all from Gina K Designs. Chocolate kiss, Ivory and Pumpkin Spice. The brown ribbon is from my scrape pile. I used dimensionals to pop them up.

Melanie has done it again! This set is just wonderful and I love it!!
You can click on the card if you want a larger view.

For more inspiration with the stamps previewed today, visit Gina's blog as well as Melanie Muenchinger, the illustrator of Year of Leaves and Asela Hopkins, the illustrator of Fruitful Harvest.

For even more projects with tonight's two stamp sets, these Senior Design Team Members are participating in previews today: Cindy, Donna, Emily, Erika, Kurtis, Jessica, Lee, Lynn, ,
and
Theresa as well as our CenterStage Spotlight Design Team members: Denise Kelemen and Geri Utterback
