And here is my take:

Autumn Birthday Leaves - by karen @ carefree creations

Love these colors together! Honestly, I wasn’t sure at first, but I did my research and came up with an idea. Once I started stamping and putting it together, I really fell in love with the colors!

The colors are pretty intense. To keep the card cheery and fun, I used a light color base. Also, the leaves are kissed with patterns which gives texture but also removes some of the color so it isn’t as intense.

The sentiment is stamped directly on the card base; the frame is popped-up. I did mask the sentiment are off just in case the leaves wanted to peek through.

  1. This is such a fab CAS card, autumnal but bright and cheerful, the colours are perfect but you’ve made the leaves even better with the textured stamping. I’m glad you ended up liking the combo and that you created this beautiful card

  2. I really like the leaves framing the sentiment panel. Using the kissing technique on them was a smart way to go – it adds a lot of visual interest without distracting from the overall design of the card.
