The canvas was stamped with one of the flowers from the Flower Shop stamp set. This was cut out using the coordinating punch and decorated with one of the beautiful antique brads. (I thought afterwards that the punches are really only designed to cut out paper so perhaps I should have cut it out by hand; but it did cut beautifully and didn't seem to do any harm to the punch which is a tribute to its sharpness!)
I stamped some leaf outlines from Gently Falling onto a piece of Very Vanilla card stock and cut a panel out. I cut only partially on one side so that I could trim round the leaf. A border was pierced on both sides for a bit of detail and the canvas flower attached using glue dots. I used a piece of chevron designer paper for the side of the card but it looked a little stark so I inked over it using the same colours as for the flower and that tied everything together nicely.
This bold sentiment comes from the Oh Hello stamp set and I've stamped it twice, once on the card front and then again on the panel, masking the card front off and using a stamp-a-majig to position it.
I've just spotted that CASual Fridays has a lovely autumnal challenge too, 'Fall colours and a leaf', so I think I'll link up there too.

It was such a relaxing start to the day that my daughter and I even managed a little rummage through Pinterest together this morning after breakfast! This is one of the images we saw:
Isn't it striking?! (Sadly we couldn't find a source for it.) My daughter, while appreciating the beauty of the image, is never one to pass up on a comedic opportunity. "You know that moment," she said dreamily. "When you kiss your boyfriend and he turns into birds!"
Enjoy the rest of your weekend and I'll see you soon,
