Leaf It to the RSG Gals

It's the third Wednesday of September, which means it's the day that Kelly, Barb, and I share our Ready, Set, Go creations. Not sure what that is? Well, it's a lot of fun! And a bit of creativity. And an extreme challenge theme.

Ready, Set, Go is an idea that Kelly came up with over two years ago and she invited Barb and I to join her on the adventure. We take turns choosing the theme, but the idea is for it to be a bit more challenging than just the average theme. Ready? Set? Go!

This month it was Kelly's turn to choose the theme and she came up with a really creative and fun idea. She mailed a gorgeous wooden leaf to Barb and I along with these words...

I've enclosed a leaf that I purchased for us YEARS ago when we first started thinking one day we'd use it. Now is the time! I bought 3 of them in Tennessee on our vacation during the winter - and while it was a GLORIOUS blanket of snow (yay me!). I also adore the changing leaves and the gorgeous colors of autumn. Your challenge for this round is to create a card with this gorgeous leaf somehow in a card! (we DID sign up for a challenge, amiright?!) You can use any other stamps, embellishments, etc. - just use this somewhere/somehow. Happy changing of the leaves and season!

Here's my card (complete with the leaf):

Be sure to check out Barb's blog and Kelly's blog to see what they did with this Ready Set Go theme!
