Welcome to day FOUR of MFT Teasers!  Today, I'm showing a little sneak of Thankful Leaves and the coordinating Fall Leaves Die-namics.



I went the CAS route tonight and let the bold red really stand out.  I started with a 5x5 card base in Whip Cream Card Stock.  I stamped the scripted background in Memento Desert Sand ink and then trimmed around the edges to cut it to size.  I matted it with some Hot Fudge Card Stock and then layered that on some Kraft Card Stock.  The leaf is cut out using a Fall Leaves Die-namics and then I stamped it in Real Red ink (the veins are stamped in Memento Rich Cocoa).  The flags along the side are made from the new Fishtail Flags Layers STAX Die-namics and then I added some Hemp Cord with a Hot Fudge Button.  The layout is Retro Sketches #32.

Be sure to stop by the MFT Blog for a complete list of designers playing along in today's Teaser.

Here are the new Die-namics I used today:
