Limelight Monthly Project

Today is the 6th, so that means it's time for the monthly Limelight Papercrafts Project Parade! This month we are featuring Fall or Halloween Home decor with a matching card. My project popped into my head one night while I was falling asleep. I am happy to say it came together much better than I expected. I think it is so cute and adds such a fun element to my kitchen island. I got out all my other fall decorations today, so this fits right in. I made the cutest little fall tree with branches from a tree we have out front of our house. I love that I brought in a little bit of nature!I used the acorn and leaf images from the Unity Sept. Store KOTM (YES, those are my favorite images from the kit, along with the grateful sentiment) and accented the branches with the brown gingham ribbon, Off Beat Buttons, and some gorgeous October Afternoon papers. Here's a close up of the vase tag and tree ornaments. And here is the card I made to match. I actually made this first and used this as my inspiration for the tree. Those polka dots and stripes together just make me smile.
I added stitching and some die cute leaves to help give the fall feeling to the card. Once again, I used my stamp-a-majig and markers to stamp the sentiment just right! Follow me and come see what fabulous Fall/Halloween projects the rest of the DT came up with. Mandy, Amy, Lee, JenMarie, Ryann, and our October Guest designer Sarah Martina!!!
