Joy's Life Thanksgiving Leaves card

When Joy asked us to use leaves this week, I couldn't wait to break out my new (used) gypsy and see what I could find on there. I got it from Ebay pre-loaded with a bunch of cartridges. Sure, I have a list of the carts that are on there, but I don't have all the images memorized. This cut was a pair of leaves. I cut two pairs from each of two We R Memory Keepers patterned papers.

I wanted to evoke the idea of falling leaves. After I got them on there, I decided it needed something - but not too much, so I outlined the leaves. Then the sentiment needed something, so I underlined it. Love this sentiment from the It's All Fall stamp set

this is for the dare to be sassy challenge to use fall colors and the papertake weekly autumn challenge.

They're not just falling leaves, they're leaves piling up for jumping in!
