Yesterday I made a quick card after seeing a couple of challenges and getting inspiration from some snippets in my left overs folder.

The circle of 'trees' is a piece left over from when I made this card over a year ago. It is an emboss resist technique with a woodgrain stencil.
The leaf die is newly acquired from Concord & 9th, I cut it and inlaid pieces from my second snippet (seen in the picture). The little hearts are also from that snippet.
The word strip is a stamp a from Concord & 9th set called lace leaf.
The circle is mounted on orange craft foam, you can just see it peaking out on the picture below. The card base is adorable scorable, which is a coated card so it has a bit of a shine, which is hard when it comes to taking the photo when the light isn't very good. It has been pouring with rain here all day.
The following close up shows the colours better.

I am sharing this card at:
NBUS#19 - The leaf die is NBUS


Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog today, I really appreciate it.

This is a beautiful autumn design, Hillary! I have that heart-shaped leaf die and I love how you used it as a wonderful accent to your colorful circle of trees in a forest! Great use of your snippets and I love the sheen of your card base! Thank you for sharing with everyone at NBUS! Keep safe! Hugs, Darnell
