Seize the Birthday - Leaves

This time at Seize the Birthday it's all about Leaves!  Of course, if you are not interested in our topping, it's always "Anything Goes" as long as it's for a birthday.  I would like to welcome Hannelie Bester to our little group.  Welcome, Hannelie!  Click on her name and it will take you to her blog.  I hope you will stop by and leave her some love!

Here's my card

The choice is yours!

This was a fun card to make.  For those of you who know me, you know that I love to make my own backgrounds.  This topping seemed like the perfect opportunity!  I pulled out an oldie but a goodie from Gina K. Designs called Grateful Heart.  I love that the leaves are decorated with a pretty design, and they stamp beautifully. I paired the leaves with some of my favorite fall colors.  Thanks so much for coming by to look.

Please visit the Seize the Birthday blog to see the beautiful cards the rest of the team have made this week.  I hope you will be inspired and want to play along!
