Viva La Verve: Happy Fall

Fall arrived in our neck of the woods today with a rainy cold front that hit about the time church got out.  It is certainly welcome and refreshing. Verve's new Autumn Leaves is versatile and lots of fun...maybe a grown up version of jumping into a pile of leaves.  The leaves were randomly stamped on craft, colored with Prismacolors (sorry for the glare in the late-night photos), and the panel was cut with a stitched rectangle die.  The next layer was distressed and sponged with desert sand.  The pretty seam binding was purchased at Crop Stop.

Thanks for visiting and have a great week!
