Jumping in Leaves

     Nothing is more fun in the fall than jumping in leaves!  Kids love doing it and grown ups love remembering when their bodies were young enough to do it.  Well, at least I do.  :-D

     Another Friday and another "Anything Goes" challenge from QKR Stampede.  I'm sticking with doing autumn cards in hopes that the fall weather will finally arrive and today's card is no exception.  I've used an image and a sentiment from QKR's sister company, Eureka Stamps.  The image is called "Lady Throwing Leaves" and the sentiment is "Jump into Pile of Leaves."

I was inspired by the sketch at AAA Cards
turned sideways.

     I chose the scrap of paper before I started coloring with ProMarkers and pulled colors from it.  I cut the image and the brown frame with Sizzix dies.  I printed the sentiment, hand cut it and inked the edges with a ProMarker. 

     I took the scrap of paper and tore the edges all the way around for a distressed look.  I layered everything onto a kraft card base.  I dub out black and gold jute cord and wrapped the card front with them, tying a knot.  I also tied a small, black, polka dot, bowtie bow and added it.  I really liked the CAS look of the design so I left it as it was.

Oh wow all of those colorful leaves look spectacular on your card design Connie! I love that! Such a cute image for sure and I do remember jumping into leaves, but just sort of kick them around now as I rake them up! LOL! I still love being out there though! Thanks for sharing my friend! HUGS

Hi NanaConnie, this is such a fabulous card, and really has a lighthearted feeling. This is one of my favourite things to do in autumn, much to the disgust of my kids and the delight of my grandkids. Cheers, CarolG

I LOVE this!! Adorable image and fantastic sentiment and paper! I just can't help myself - I STILL stomp on crisp Autumn leaves if I spot them on a walk, so this really made me smile! Thanks so much for sharing it with us at Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenges!

A super cute card and great coloring. No, jumping in the leaves for me, I am afraid I would pick up a few bugs in the pile. :)
