summer leaves adventure

I needed one more enclosure card for an order I was packaging yesterday, so I sped through some challenge blogs (I was about two weeks behind) and found two I thought would work together. CAS Colours & Sketches #132 sketch and Cut It Up challenge #75 - word:
stamp sets - Tin of Cards, Vintage Leaves; ink - Pear Pizzazz, Wild Wasabi, Garden Green; card stock - Garden Green, Pear Pizzazz, Wild Wasabi; Big Shot with Leaflets framelits
Isn't this leaf wonderful?  The Vintage Leaves stamp set is new, and has matching framelits.  Sometimes I get "stuck" thinking that leaves are an autumn "theme", but the many, varied shades of green are one of my favorite things about summer.  I was trying to capture that with this card.

You're so right about leaves not just being for Autumn - I tend to think that too. Great card and use of the sketch. Thanks for playing at CC&S.

This green monotone card is so cool. I love the leaves, and you're right! We tend to think of them as suitable for fall, but we really see them in spring and summer as well, in varying shades of green.

Your card is beautiful and peaceful. Thanks for sharing it with us at Cut it Up!

Those leaves are lots of fun and the greens you chose to use work together beautifully!

I agree with the comments about Autumn leaves. Love your monochrome card and the extra detail on the envelope. Thanks for joining us at CC&S this last week. Stef x
