Autumn Leaves Christmas Tree

I was so excited to receive my Cuttlebug Christmas tree folder as the prize for the Cuttlebug Spot Challenge #6 that I had to jump right in a make a card. Thank you so much Nilda! I spent yesterday afternoon with my girlfriend at an art and wine event at one of the local wineries. It was absolutely beautiful weather and I was inspired by the gorgeous autumn colors of the leaves so I decided to decorate my tree with some of the pretty metallic leaf brads I got at Michaels. I thought they looked pretty with the copper embossing. I matted it in gold, added some adhesive beads, an organdy bow and some gorgeous corner peel offs and sentiment from my Cricut message board friend B-bug. I think they added the perfect touch. Thank you Jen!
