Acorns, Leafs, And A "Wee Fairy"






Have you ever made a card where you lose yourself in just creating? This card was one of those for me. I loved this new "Wee" image and couldn't wait to color it up. You can find this stamp and many more at 7 Kids College Fund (where I was a winner in their last challenge)! (That is not an earthquake it me doing the happy dance!) I have had this bright fall paper for several years and I have no idea where it came from. It seemed the perfect paper for this card. I used a die (yes, I don't know who this one is either) for the swirl and leaves. I die cut the leaves out of white card stock and used my Copics to color them to match the leaves in the image. I think the leaves are supposed to be holly leaves but they worked for this! I popped them on the top of the original die cut. A C.C. acorn die cut was used for the cute little acorns. Again I used white card stock and colored the acorns with Copics. I popped them on with a foam dimensional and added Stickles to the swirl of the die. Because the background paper is so busy I decided this was all the embellishments the card needed. I hope you are ready for fall, it is definitely in the air here. 
I am entering this card at the following challenges:

My Song: The Mommas and the Poppas
All the leaves are brown and the sky is gray.
I've been for a walk on a winter's day.
I'd be safe and warm if I was in L.A.;
California dreamin' on such a winter's day.
Stopped in to a church I passed along the way.
Well I got down on my knees and I pretend to pray.
You know the preacher liked the cold;
He knows I'm gonna stay.
California dreamin' on such a winter's day.
All the leaves are brown and the sky is gray.
I've been for a walk on a winter's day.
If I didn't tell her I could leave today;
California dreamin' on such a winter's day.

(In our valley in Idaho our sky has been filled with smoke from the California fires. not exactly dreamin' of California! LOL!)

I really like the way you used that leaf pattern in contrast with the white mat and the stamp. Sometimes I have trouble with patterns like that. Thanks for joining us over at the DoubleClick Skittles Challenge!
