I am sharing with you all today a new set I have recently purchased called Vintage Leaves.
I fell in love with this set as soon as I saw it in the Annual Catalogue.
The Autumn season has finished here in Australia and we are now in mid Winter.
But Autumn for me means brisk chilly days filled with a riot of colour.
My daughter and I love collecting leaves of all different colours over Autumn during our walks. She glues them to absolutey everything! lol. Me I just keep a couple and put them between the pages of a few heavy books where I keep other special flowers I have been given or found over my lifetime.

I used the Global Design Projects weekly challenge for my inspiration point and started creating.

Here is my card

My card base is Crumb Cake card stock with a layer of wood grain DSP from the Coffee Break suite.
To create my leaves began by smooshing an A4 sheet of thick Whisper white with Cajun Craze, Daffodil Delight, Chocolate Chip and Pumpkin Pie. 
I let it dry and then stamped my leaf images over the top.

When the leaves had all been cut I chose three of roughly the same shade and gold embossed over the  already stamped images. As I wanted gold highlights for my card.
I used metallic Gold Thread and wrapped that around the stems of the leaves. I wrapped this also around the DSP twice and coiled it under the leaves. 
The leaves are held in place with glue dots.
For my sentiment I chose to use the Tabs for Everything stamp and punch set.

To finish this card off and carry through the gold just that little bit more I added 5 metallic enamel shapes.
For the inside I added a small die cut leaf with gold thread looped behind and 1 metallic gold shape.
