Leaves and Doodles!

Hello! Happy mid week :)
Okay, blue...green and kraft.....how can you go wrong?! Well for me anyway since I love earth tones.
Make it CAS and you've got me!
That's why I love this simple card....

My Spellbinders dies have become my new best friend. I haven't had them long. I just this past week found a deckled rectangle set on clearance at Hobby Lobby! Woot! Woot! very excited about that. Can't wait to try them out. For this card I used my trusty Circle dies. I added a couple rounds of doodling and a single green leaf.
For the sentiment, I inked it and curved it a little before adding it to the card. Some scoring, ribbon, a button and twine finish it off.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Until next time...
Blessings...

Very, very pretty! The colors are beautiful together! I love earth-y tones too! :) Also, score on the clearance dies!! A girl can never have too many cutt-y out-ty things! :)

Melina... ANOTHER GREAT CAS card. I love my spellbinders too but recently MFT is launching a line of dies and I found them AWESOME. Last month were ovals and now they are introducing circles. They are cheap and come closer one from the other so the frame looks really close and not that thick. I like that.
Love your colour combo as well!!!

Look at you doodling on your card. I get nervous using a white gel pen for accents! LOL

You are right, those colors go well together and help feature your image.

You will love the Deckle Nesties. Hint, the edges look really good sponged with a little ink. It shows off the Deckle edge.

Perfect job this round, my friend!
