Lawn Fawn Harvest Season

Hi Friends

I know you might be thinking that this is supposed to be a new release today. But Lawn Fawn decided to do a fun thing and do a throwback from last year’s sets.  Some of us are featuring Harvest Season, and some of the other designers’ are showing Heebie Jeebies.

Lawn Fawn released Heebie Jeebies and Harvest Season last year, and both are fabulously adorable sets that deserve a little love, don’t you think?

Here’s what I came up with:

I’ve wanted to make a wreath using the leaves from this set for a long time. This release week, or throwback day gave me the perfect excuse to do it!  I started by stamping a circle of leaves on white cardstock that is the card front, and then stamping leaves on another sheet of paper.  I colored them various fallish shades. I cut several out from the other sheet of paper and arranged to create a full wreath.  I added the strip of patterned paper and stamped the sentiment.  I wrapped some twine from the Twinery around it and adhered to the card base.  I tied a bow and attached to the wreath with a button and finally added some bling to it. 

I hope you like it.  Be sure to go to the Lawn Fawn blog to see the other designers’ projects and sign up for your chance to win

Hugs and blessings

Really love this card! Those leaves are so jaunty, they give a special cheerfulness to the design. Having it 3D makes it even cuter.
