Here is what I had created for this challenge:

I decided to use a really simple approach to this challenge and make sure that the sentiment stood out from the other elements on the card, so that's why I used them sparingly. I have a list of supplies below that I used to create this card.

For the fall leaves, I just glued them down, overlapping them and then took some brown twine I had. I wanted it to be reminiscent of twigs with the fall leaves. Then, I took my sentiment and used some foam adhesive and glued that down to where I felt it looked best. It's not exactly centered and I liked that! 

For some interest and movement, I added 3 little pearls to the card. In our family, we have quite a few fall birthdays, so this is the perfect card to give to a family member that says celebrate your birthday with a little fall flair :) 

I hope you're inspired to have a fun time creating for this challenge! Make sure you check the Lawnscaping Challenge blog for full details on entering to win.
