seeing double adventure

I had some fun with the challenge for week 32 at Less is More to have two of something on a one-layer card:
I stamped two leaves from the two-step stamp set Gently Falling.  Two-step stamp sets have a stamp for the outline and a stamp for the filler, so each of my two leaves were stamped twice, once in Tangerine Tango and once in Cajun Craze.  I tied some Early Espresso baker's twine twice around the top of the card and tied two bows, then I used my paper piercer and mat pack to pierce two rows of holes in the lower corner.  The sentiment, stamped in Early Espresso on the More Mustard base, is from the holiday set Grateful Greetings. 

This is another set that will easily add some versatility to your collection - there are three sentiments for each of four holidays (Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, Valentine's Day).  Each holiday has its own font style, so if you use more than one on any project it will be fully coordinated.  Here is the inside of my card:

Our weather here in Michigan is more fall-like this week than I'd prefer - it felt like the right time to change the background on my blog and I may change the welcome flag at the end of the driveway, too (if it stops raining).  There was a waning but nearly-full moon just above the tree line this morning, so I was inspired to get my camera out before breakfast.  Although the moon became invisible in the photo, you can see the beginnings of autumn colors in the black locust tree on the left:

I really like your leaf card. Very pretty. Definately makes me think fall. I love fall! I think you have inspired me to make some leafy cards. :)
