falling leaves

Hi everyone. I didn't think I was going to get a chance to stamp this week. But hey it doesn't take that long to make a card and what's wrong with a ten minute fun break during a busy week.
Since I am short on time I decide to put my 2 favorite challenges together. the Friday mashup and Sunday stamps
At the Friday  mashup Rita whats us to mash together leaves with a thank you.

 And at Sunday stamps Hayley has a great sketch for us to work with.

 Also don't forget they are having a drawing for 2 $25.00 Stampin' Up gift certificates. Hurry and play along.
Here is the card I came up with.

The supplies I used:
From Stampin' Up
stamp set- cheery chats
cardstock- more mustard, always artichoke, and very vanilla
inks- cajun craze and always artichoke
Designer papers in matching colors
ribbon- very vanilla grosgrain
I die cut the leaves using the provo crafts mini leaf die.
The edges are all distress and edged with cajun craze ink as is the leaves.
I hope you like my card. Please stop back again.
