French Foliage again!

Since I already had it out, and I found another "Fall" challenge over at Hand Stamped Sentiments, I decided to make another card with French Foliage. I think it may be my all time favorite leaf set!! So easy to work with!!


I flipped through the Color Coach and found a good "Fall" set: Elegant Eggplant, Garden Green & More Mustard. I added a little River Rock too. Card base is Elegant Eggplant with a More Mustard layer behind a Naturals Ivory background. On the background I stamped the large leaf in Elegant Eggplant, middle leaf in Garden Green and small leaf in More Mustard. Then I added splatter dots over it all with River Rock. I sponged the edge, attached a Scallop Dots Eggplant ribbon upside down across the center, and attached to the More Mustard. The saying, from Pursuit of Happiness, was stamped in Elegant Eggplant on Naturals Ivory with two small leaves in More Mustard and dots in River Rock. It is layered onto Elegant Eggplant and attached with dimensionals over the ribbon. For accent, I added two Antique Brads, one on each side of the saying.

Thanks for stopping by today!!

Beautiful color combination! Great idea to use the color coach. I love the colors you chose are different from the usual fall colors. I never thought Elegant Eggplant could look so fall. Great job on the leaf collage. Thanks for playing at Hand Stamped Sentiments.

This is a great card!! For a minute there, I had to make sure these were stamped images and not real leaves. The way they are on the cardstock they look so natural. The color combo and all of the embellishments are a perfect choice for this card!! Thank you for joining us at Hand Stamped Sentiments. :)
