Falling Leaves

I had so much fun creating this card. First I stamped the border on the left, using the leaf from Darling Dots and thought I'd end up with a clean and simple card. I then envisioned all of those cut out leaves and a wreath of some sort. Well, it isn't round because I chose to surround a definition from Define Your Life, which is a rectangle shape. After I cut out the square matte in Pumpkin Pie card stock, I thought I'd do a line of piercing. During the piercing I saw all those dots on the leaves and thought I'd use one of them for my stencil in two of the corners. I hope you enjoy looking at my card. Please leave me a comment so I know you were here.
