Catch the Leaf

Hello, everyone.  Today I made another fall card.

If you've been following my blog, then you know I love cats.  This cat digi was created by Jo Trimgym at Trimgym's Digistamps, Papers and Images.  Now I don't know for sure, but I think she created it just for me (I'm telling myself that anyway LOL) because it appeared soon after I requested a kitty image.  Thank you, Jo - I love it!  It's a freebie and it's still available here, for a limited time anyway so go check it out.  I was tickled pink to see the cute fall kitty trying to catch the leaf and I couldn't wait to create a card.  I coloured the image with pencils and mounted on brown cardstock.

I started by covering a white card base with brown cardstock and added a layer of digi paper.   I got this as a freebie too - did you know that if you play along in Trimgym's monthly challenge, you can request a freebie to play - I requested a paper pack and it included this beautiful paper.  Thank you, Jo, for your wonderful paper!  There's still time to play along so why not head over and check it out. 

Next I added two large fabric maple leaves and affixed the image with foam tape.  I added some sparkly rust-coloured ribbon and affixed the sentiment, which I die-cut into an oval and mounted on a rust-coloured oval.  The sentiment was also a freebie - it came in both black and pre-coloured (the one I used) and it's from Melonheadz - another great place for freebies - thank you!  Lastly I added a number of metallic leaves.  Here are the supplies used:
