Happy Fall

Isn't this picture gorgeous!? I love the decorations that come along with fall. This is the inspiration photo for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday #138 challenge. I opted to go with the fall theme and along with that the colors of fall. My project also fits the Pixie Cottage #90 challenge with the theme of Fall Fun, and the Delightful Sketches challenge to "make it dimensional".

The little bag is made from the "Tricky Tote" template from My Time Made Easy. It does take a couple sheets of paper (6 or so with the decorative layer) but was really easy to put together and is just really adorable. I loved it so much, I used it in another project which you can see in my next post. For the embellishment I cut two leaf branches and cut them apart, topped them with a die cut maple leaf that I scored the veins into and inked up the center and edges with red ink to add a more realistic look, then I stamped, colored and cut out the two acorns and layered the whole bunch together.
