Just Us Girls 257! WORD WEEK

Hello and welcome to the weekend! I'm so glad to have a couple of days off to regroup and prepare for the 5 day week.  Anyway, here is what I've made for the JUGS challenge that I'm hosting this week.  I hope you like my word choice-LEAVES!!
Yep, show us any kind of leaf or leaves on your card/project.  They can be part of a stamp or die cut like mine! Your choice!

 I actually started with the box you see below. It's a new Papertrey Ink box die-a gable box. It's adorable!! Then I diecut a BUNCH (very technical word!) of leaves with the Impression Obsession leaf set die cut. I cut my leaves from Hisbiscus Pink (PTI), Summer Sun (retired SU), Coastal Cabana, and Limeade Ice (PTI). I sponged until my fingers were super inky! Adirondack lettuce on the limeade ice and coastal cabana, pumpkin pie on the summer sun and pink. Then I sponged them all with Soft suede on part of the edge.  Didn't want them to appear too even or alike.  I scrunced and folded them on the score line with is made with the die and they were ready to mount on my kraft card stock card and box. The card is 4.25 x 4.25 inches.

 I played with the placement for awhile and finally ended up with this leaf bouquet. I started sticking them on with glue dots.  Added a twine bow at the end.
I've said it before, but it bears repeating-Ours is such a great challenge because you can use any of your supplies that you've been itching to use-like me with this box die!
Please check out our BLOG for tons more inspiration and get crafty with us!
You can upload with Mr. Linky until next Thursday, Sept. 11 at 9pm ET.  We can't wait to see what you make!
Thanks for coming by! Have a great day!
