Ways To Use It Challenge 346

Hello & Happy Thursday!

It's a rainy, dreary one here today and calling for our first frost this season! Guess that means I better dig out our winter coats later!

Today is the Ways To Use It Challenge....another challenge I always like to participate in!
We were challenges today to use "leaves". I found in my stash this leaf wreath that I stamped last year and never got to use. It is done with the little leaf in the SU set called Autumn Days. I do not own this set but one day hope too! It's a nice set! :)

I cut my wreath out with a Circle Nestibilities and layered it onto a piece of Always Artichoke cut with the Circle Scallop Nestibilities. I added a few little gold beads & an Elegant Eggplant Grosgrain Ribbon bow. I used More Mustard as my card base and a piece of Neenah White cs on top of that which was run thru the Cuttlebug with the Houndstooth Embossing Folder. I only ran it thru about 3/4 of the way so i'd have room to place my sentiment. I added a piece of More Mustard Grosgrain Ribbon and called it done! And the nice thing about it is that it's pretty flat for mailing purposes! :)
Take a look....
