Hip Hop! Fun & Funky Fall

Hey guys!  Happy Thursday!  :)  Today I have a fun fall card for you... using very non-traditional colors.  Do you remember this awesome Store Kit for August???  Well... it's still sitting on my desk because I can't stop inking it up!

I really love every square inch of this set!  For this card, I used a couple of the leaf stamps.  If you look closely, you'll see that each leaf has a unique pattern.  Anything with 'text' is super trendy right now... and I love how each leaf contains a tiny text background.  



I trimmed out my leaf images & then adhered them to a scrap of felt.  (I buy most of mine from Heather Bailey's online shop.)  Then, I just trimmed around the image again.  I machine stitched some veins and added lots of Zva pearls.  Check out these sparkle-licious alpha stickers from My Little Shoebox.  They're super duper cute paired with a little Melissa Frances rub-on.  :)  I'm really loving this new shade of green that's popping up, btw.  It's kind of a mintish mermaid green.  Very fun.  :)  The grid paper is by October Afternoon.
