Changing of the Leaves

Today is third Wednesday of the month and this is my Ready, Set, Go Challenge Card! The 3 Musketeers--Kelly, Jeanette and me--are back with another challenge for November-our 30th month!  That means we are well into our third year--YAY!

Kelly provided the challenge for November: Kelly purchased three wooden leaves a few years ago while on vacation in Tennessee in the winter!  She admired the blanket of snow--remember, Kelly lives in Miami, Florida!  She also loved the changing of the leaves and the gorgeous colors of autumn. She sent each of us one of the wooden leaves and challenged us to use it on a card. 

Ready? Set? Go!

I think the wooden leaf is so pretty and I love the veins in all parts of the leaf.  It looks like a maple leaf and they are gorgeous in the fall.  We have two maple trees outside our dining room window and they are stunning to look at in October-November.  However, this year we had 6 inches of snow on Halloween, while most of the leaves were still on the tree. Now, they are on the ground, mixed with snow.  We did not get them picked up this fall so we will have a larger project in the spring.

My card highlights the leaf, along with some fall patterned paper.  I added the word cherish.  I cherish my 3-M friends.  I also cherish the seasons we have in Wisconsin, even if they have been mixed up the past few years.................

Here is the inside of my card.

Please be sure to check out the other Ready, Set, Go cards.  Here is a link to Jeanette's and Kelly's blog.  I am sure you will not be disappointed and will see a couple of great cards! I hope Kelly and Jeanette like my card.  I am up for the next theme, so be sure to check back to see what we are up to on the 3rd Wednesday in December!

WOW! This is gorgeous, Barb - the papers are perfect, the rich color scheme is divine, and the bow tied around the leaf is so creative!
