Thanksgiving Card ~ Leaves a Fallin' (post #1)

I had a little time to play today and got a few cards finished.
For the first one I used the sketch on Jo's challenge as my guide.
It worked perfectly with the Verve shape challenge.
I wanted to use a Paper Nest Doll image and found two that I wanted to create with.
{The second one is in the next post.}
Knowing that I wanted to go with the thankful, Thanksgiving and fall themes I got out my Cuttlebug cut and emboss to cut these sweet little leaves.
I colored up the image with Copics then cut it out with a circle punch.
Next I cut the scallop circles to finish up the frame effect I was going for.
The back ground is embossed to give it a little texture.
And to finish it off I die cut the banners and added the sentiment.
I hope this will express how thankful I am to have the recipient in my life.
