Purple Leaves

Remember the song Purple Rain?  Well, this is my card, Purple Leaves!  I really have ignored this season's In Colors and I wanted to remedy that, so I thought I would make a fall card using Fresh Fig and some other purple hues; purples are difficult for me, so this was a real personal challenge:

I started by stamping a bunch of the little leaf image from Colorful Seasons in different shades and diecutting them with their matching die.  I then put them in a Jar of Love jar, added a little lid, a tag and some linen thread:

Even though these may not be traditional fall leaf colors, I think they're so pretty!  I added a sentiment from Beautiful Bouquet and a leftover leaf on the inside of the Crumb Cake card, too:

Thanks for popping in today--enjoy and be blessed!

This is so neat and, of course, purple is my favorite! Orange and green is the most difficult for me and CAS. How's the house coming?

I love your jar of fall leaves! That cute tag goes perfectly with it too! Pretty card for fall for sure.

This is adorable and a perfect fall card. I really like the kraft card base with the fall colors too. Thanks for the inspiration.

I just don't know how you keep turning out such delightful cards! I love this one and now wish I'd bought this set. The paper is gorgeous but your fussy cut flower is just a stunner. Love the wee acorn too.
