Shopping our Stash #78 - I'm Leafing it Up to You!


For this week's challenge at Shopping our Stash, we want you to dig into your stash & find a leaf (or many leaves!) and use them on your project. Leaf images are fine too - trees, leaves, punches, die-cuts, Prima-type....hopefully you get the idea! 


Supplies: papers from Basic Grey "Oxford;" square punch for notching banner end; leaves from Prima; birthday sentiment from EAD Designs; ribbon salvaged from product wrapping. 


It's a crazy sort of non-bow in there...you may remember the funky frayed bow I made out of thread on this card? 
This is the ribbon that was left over. It made a bow, but one that was way too small for this card. But the colours were such a good match...{insert crafty whine}...so I fiddled and played and glued and cursed until I got it looped & fluffed in a way I liked. 

This leafy Shopping our Stash challenge will be open until next Monday night, November 26 - and don't forget to check out all my awesome teammates:



xoxo,
Jessi
