Every Leaf is a Flower

 Good morning!!! I am back from a great weekend full of family, good food and stamping :)  I got a lot done in the studio this weekend AND played around with my Stampin' Up Digital Studio enough to make a new blog banner and sidebar titles :)  I've even added some pages along the top...check out the Wild Card Colour Challenges...all the challenges are up with samples :)  Today's lovely card makes me smile :)  It's for the 2 Sketches 4 You sketch this week.  I've been playing with my new PTI leaf and autumn sets AND the leaf dies.  Oh, I love them!!  I cut the felt out with 2 of the dies and stamped the veins on top!!  EEK!! I need more felt colours!!  I experimented with 2 types of stitching (my poor sewing machine must think I'm psycho!!LOL).  Now, you may be thinking, hmmm....circle panel and she didn't go for a button tree...well, I almost did!! I had the tree stamp out and was lining it up on the panel when I changed my mind for the felt leaves.  Can you blame me?  Have a lovely day and I would love to hear any feedback about the new blog look :D  Hugs and smiles to you :)

I was so tempted to get those leaf dies! It was one of those things where I just wanted to see it used more to see it I would actually use them. I'm liking them more and more!!

I love the roughly embossed white circle with the leaves on top. It looks like a tree without the button tree!
