Exquisite Branch
by Jeanne Jachna

Leaves-2
Can you believe it's November already?  I'm just getting used to the idea that Summer is gone and now it seems like Winter will be here before I know it.  Time goes fast enough, no reason to rush it right?  So let's enjoy the now!  It was a beautiful day in the Chicago area so I took my fur baby Miss Moriko for a walk.  The fall foliage put on quite a show for us, and we were quite entertained by all the mischievous squirrels we saw!
Leaves-1
It inspired me to make this beautiful fall scene.  I started with the Exquisite Branch background die - its perfect for an A2 size card (4.25 x 5.5").  I cut this and the Frisky Squirrels from black card stock.   I added only portions of the die in blues and yellows, inserted like jig saw puzzle pieces.
Leaves-4
I secured the pieces on the back of the die with washi tape.  Next I added adhesive foam tape and secured the die cut on a panel of bright orange before I secured it to a white card base.  You can really see the depth / window effect it added here.
Leaves-3
The sentiment is from the new "Falling For You" stamp set.   I stamped it on a Classic Ribbon die cut. 
Leaves
Here is the finished card.  The stained glass look is absolutely stunning!  Enjoy the now! Hugs!

Hi Jeanne, This is a beautiful autumnal card, I love all the 'undulations' you have put into this scene, and it is definitely a beautiful stained glass effect. I love it !!
It has brightened up my day, my weather here is dank and drab and really depressing, so this is a lovely uplifting effect.
Lots of love from Patricia xx
