  1. Lovely card Barbara. I like how you layered the leaves over the die-cut squares, also the gold twine is a great touch.

  2. A gorgeous Fall card design. I always love to see leaves and trees on cards.

  3. Well this is just stinkin' FABULOUS!!! I love the white, it really makes those leaves pop. And that texture in the background panel is perfect, but of course the stars of the show are the leaves and the great design. This is simply stunning. I love everything about it.

  4. I love the soft neutrals of this card, and those leaves are gorgeous. Beautifully done.

  5. The watercolor/embossing technique of the leaves is fabulous. Love the thread nest too. Lots of beautiful texture. Thanks so much for letting me hang out with you all!

  6. Gorgeous Fall Birthday card! Love the pretty foliage and that gold twine! WOW!

  7. What a beautiful card! Love the look of the leaves, and how you've added so much of the texture within it. Fantastic!

  8. Beautiful card, Barbara, I really like your design and the added gold thread!

  9. Those leaves look amazing Barbara, love the embossed background and the gold twine too, (I can never get that to look any good!) Cathy x

  10. Such a gorgeous fall card Barb! Every time I try to add gold thread it doesn't work for me but yours is perfect!

  11. What a gorgeous design, Barbara! The embossed background and the texture of the leaves look fabulous together!

  12. Gorgeous Barbara! I love the leaves so much and the gold thread it the perfect touch.

  13. Fab autumnal card, Barbara! One of my favourite pastimes is rustling through carpets of dry fallen leaves, and your card reminds me of doing just that!
