Stampin” Up! Gorgeous Leaves Card for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hi Stampers,  Today for our hop we have an “Autumn/Harvest” theme.  Fall is my favorite time of year and I love making fall cards to give out as we celebrate this season of gratitude and thankfulness.  Today my card uses the Gorgeous Leaves Bundle.  To add some sparkle to the card I also snuck in a piece of the Be Dazzling DSP from the Sale A Bration catalog.   This paper has so much sparkle and the more the better in my book.  Enjoy my share today and please do stop by our other creative team members blogs to see what Autumn card they created.

The Theme:
