Falling For You!

Hey Everyone, happy Wednesday!  It's Liz again from Liz's Paper Loft.  I can't believe that I'm half way through my Guest Designing week!  It's just going by soo fast!  Well today I wanted to change it up with my colors!  I normally wouldn't think of aqua and peach as fall colors, but that's what I'm doing today!  A Thanksgiving Day card with softer colors!
 

 
Wrapping the wreath with  jute adds so much texture!

 
I embossed the kraft leaves with Teresa Collins Cuttlebug folder.  Also adding  jute, seam binding ribbon, and a hemp bow with a button finishes this wreath.  Yes, 3 bows, a button, and of course glitter on the lacy background!  You can't expect me to not use glitter 2 days in a row!  :)

After stamping the sentiment, I curled the banner.

See you tomorrow with another project!
