Autumn Leaves and Trees at Allsorts

Good morning. What a fabulous day I had yesterday - finally met up with the gorgeous girls from MAWTT and as I knew we would we hit it off immediately - like we have known eachother forever!!!
Today we are going to Lisa's craft shop - Every Craft's a Pound to do a 'surprise' project - I just have to wait for the girlies to wake up lol!!!

So before I go off for another wonderful day with the girls - Claire, Laurie, Lisa and Pami
I would like to share my DT project for 

with you and this week the theme is


I knew as soon as I saw the theme that I wanted to use this very old leaf stamp that I have had forever and here's what I did:

I started with 3 squares of card stock that I inked with 3 Distress Ink colours - Frayed Burlap, Wild Honey and Fired Brick
Then I overstamped the leaf image (Creative Expressions) with the same DI's
I also added some Gilding Flakes to the edges of each square.
The forth square is a leaf patterned DP with a Craftwork Cards fancy shaped sentiment - inked with the DI's
