Retro 10 - The Leaves are Leaving

Good morning, Friends! Another week that seems to be flying by! I got so much done in my craft room yesterday! I took 10 loads out to the dumpster!! I couldn't believe some of the things that I was storing! Some of that stuff has been there for at least a decade! Yikes!! It was so nice to get rid of that stuff and be able to store stuff that needed a home. I still have quite a ways to go but it is definitely coming along! Now I need to spend some time getting some cards stamped and the laundry needs to be attended to as well. Oh, and I do need to go to the grocery store...

Today's card was inspired by a sketch at Retro Sketches. This one was last week's but I really liked the layout. Again, I am trying to use up the retiring products. The only things on my card not retiring are the silver brads, the embossing folder, the Early Espresso ink, and the Very Vanilla card stock. I cut a narrow long piece of Very Vanilla and stamped the greeting from Thank You Kindly in Early Espresso toward the bottom. This panel is adhered to a piece of Peach Parfait that was run through the Big Shot with the Square Lattice embossing folder. I wrapped a piece of Pear Pizzazz seam binding ribbon around this and added three silver brads. This panel is popped up onto a card base of Very Vanilla. On a scrap piece of Very Vanilla I stamped the leaf image from Autumn Splendor in Pear Pizzazz and Peach Parfait and cut them out. The Peach Parfait leaf is glued flat and the Pear Pizzazz leaf is popped up. I will really miss these leaves! Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!
