Thanks For Being You

Today's card is for the Shabby Tea Room Fresh Living Challenge. Here's the inspiration picture:

And here are the DEEtails:

I used my Stampin' Write markers to ink and stamp the images from my Falling Leaves set onto Sahara Sand card stock. Then I went over them, coloring in each leaf to be a solid, bold print. I cut the images to 1" squares, and trimmed some corners with my corner rounder. Then I took my Chat Room rub ons and added a single word to each leaf. I arranged my squares on my card and adhered them on. I added some ribbon below, first using Early Espresso 5/8" Grosgrain, then layered on some Theater Ribbon Orignals. For my final touch, I added a Corduroy button in Kraft, threaded with some organdy ribbon from my stash.
