An Autumn Birthday

I was looking through my stamp stash and came across this old stamp set with autumn looking leaves and I immediately remembered Kristina's Make A Card Monday from this week. I thought that the two little leaves from Stampin' Up's Fall Flair (I believe it is an old hostess set) would be perfect for paper piecing. The only autumn looking DSP that I have is Autumn Vine, so I grabbed it off the shelf. The little leaves turned out so cute paper pieced. I drew my own swirly line and used the Chocolate Chip marker to make a dotted line, giving the effect of leaves blowing in the wind. It all came together rather nicely. After I had it all done I took a look at Kristina's card and realized it is almost the same. I guess I subconsiously CASEd her card.

  1. The only thing that's the same is that you both used leaves and a dotted line. It's not an original thought anyway. Your card is very cute!
