Welcome friends and visitors! It's time for the start of a new challenge at The Funkie Junkie Boutique blog, and this time our hostess is the talented Jenny Marples. She titles her challenge 'Lovely Leaves', and this is how she describes it:

At this time of year leaves take over from flowers as the stars of Nature's display - the deciduous ones take on beautiful Autumnal hues before falling to the ground, whilst the evergreen ones keep our gardens from looking bare as we wait for new flowers to appear in the Spring. For this challenge make sure to add leaves (or even Pine Needles if you like) to your vintage or shabby chic projects.

As always, the winner will earn a chance to be a Guest Designer at a future date at The Funkie Junkie Boutique blog, and everyone who enters and follows the rules will go into the draw for the chance to win a $25 spending spree at The Funkie Junkie Boutique. There are also Top 3 Badges for three additional outstanding entries, chosen by the Design Team. Please see the blog for details.

I chose to make a vintage Christmas card that features one of Tim Holtz Ideaology Christmas Worn Wallpapers, along with some of his more recent and some past released Sizzix Thinlits dies and Stamper's Anonymous stamp sets. Most of these products can be found in Linda's shop, and the links are listed below.

You'll spot many types of  evergreens leaves on the Worn Wallpaper and lots of leaves in my dimensional arrangement made from die cuts from the Pine Branch, Funky Festive Florals and Festive Greens Thinlits sets colored with Distress inks and Oxides.

Tim's new Lumberjack stamp makes a subtle background for my Christmas message die cut from the Christmas Ribbon Thinlits set. I stamped some music scores from the older Music & Advert set. 

If you want to know more about how I made this card and another version using the same exact products,  I hope you'll join me for an easy step by step Saturday Showcase tutorial on The Funkie Junkie Boutique Blog this coming Saturday, November 23, 2019.

That's all for me today, but I hope you'll pop over to see what amazing projects my talented teammates have made for you featuring some Lovely Leaves at The Funkie Junkie Boutique Challenge Blog. Then I hope you'll show us how you incorporate leaves on your own shabby chic or vintage projects and join us for a chance to win one of the great prizes! 

Thanks for stopping by!

  7. I am SO in love with this card Sara Emily! The way you've treated the Worn Wallpaper background and added those aged festive foliage die cuts is absolutely gorgeous. Having seen your Saturday Showcase tutorial I'm even more in love with it (if that were possible!)
