Happy Friday! Although I know it's getting closer to Christmas and time to mail those Christmas cards, I wanted to do one more fall card.

could easily be a Christmas card. It is A2 size. I cut a piece of
vanilla card stock to 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 and scored it at 4 1/4. It is a top

except the main leaves and pine cone, and glued then in place. I used a
sponge dauber and VERY slightly added a little color to the center of
the leaf for some dimension. For the pine cone and main leaf I used foam
dots to raise them up. My last step was to add some red sequins for
