BBTB2 - "Fall Leaves Are Falling"

Cricut, Designer's Calendar, Elegant Edges, Thanksgiving Card

Can you guess how I'm feeling? Excited, yes, excited again because I am posting my first DT project for Bitten By The Bug 2!!!  I am now designing for another one of my favorite challenge blogs, and I couldn't be more thrilled!!!  So the challenge this week is "Fall Leaves Are Falling", and they certainly are where I'm at - how about you?  I LOVE fall and I had fun making this Thanksgiving card that captured the essence of the season.  I used Designer's Calendar for THE perfect maple leaf, and I used Elegant Edges for the mat on the front.  I did emboss the mat with The Paper Studio's "Leaves" embossing folder and my patterned paper comes from Doodlebug Designs "Happy Harvest" 6x6 paper pack (LOVE).  I have a video to show you how the card came together, so I hope you'll watch!  And I hope you link up with us over at BBTB2 this week!
