Allsorts challenge week 488 - Trees or Leaves

Good Morning another challenge at Allsorts and this weeks hoast is the lovely Mervi.
She has chosen the theme of 

Trees or Leaves or both

Our Sponsor this week is MarianneDesigns.
This is the prize she has so generously donated.

Here is my card

It uses a 6 x 6 paper from Craftwork cards for the background.
I then used a Poppystamps die - Lorelai Leaf and used the die in the centre of the papers to cut out the leaves.
I used a MFT - Stiched square, scalloped edge die, which actually make a square border but with the  centre cut out. I put the leaves onto the cut out centre and placed it in the middle of the die cut border to cover the die cut out leaves.
I punched some tiny flowers, from pink papers the make of the punch is 
Tom Tas - how old is that.? With a few tiny gems in the centre.

Thanks for popping by and any comments you are kind enough to leave.

This is so pretty Kath, the DP is beautiful and a perfect match for the delicate leaf die cut. Love the economical use of the dp too, hate using more paper than I have to!
Never heard of Tom Tas...
Hope all is well with you Kath, have a great weekend

I'm just about ready to lie down and curl my toes up here. My email account has decided it only wants to send out messages but not receive any. Perhaps I can get away with only paying half the bill then!!! Love the colours on your card.. Hugs Mrs A. With not much hair left.

A very pretty card Kath... loving the beautiful colours you used. And yes, I have that punch too!
