Dandelion Fall Card

Making a Fall card is unusual for me...............I was inspired by the Japanese Yuzen paper I had on hand (purchased from Daiso: a local Japanese Store  in SF).  This paper had the perfect Fall colors.  Card  base is SU Close to Cocoa, SU Really Rust mat with the Yuzen paper.  I also finally got a chance to use the SU Framelits Label Collection: the larger one is SU Ruby Red CS embossed using the Cuttlebug Woodgrain embossing folder and the smaller one is SU Really Rust embossed using the Cuttlebug Dots embossing folder. Both Framelits edges are sponged using brown ink.Stamped message is from Dandelion Stamps  and cute Japnese Doll is also from Dandelion Stamps their stamp set MC-25 Hi there.
Here's a side view: pop everything uopwith foam tape:
Leaves are a SVG cut file from Krewella: her blog here. I used my SCAL computer program and my Silhouette Machine as the cutter. Wow - I found some old SU buttons that I could finally use for this card along with some left over Linen thread I had on  hand, too. Pop the leaves using foam tape and the button is attached using a  mini glue dot.
Dandelion stamp: Copic colors used: E21, R20, RV29, R35, E71, Black and Sakura Jelly Roll Crystal pen "dotted" on her hair bow, neck and waist band (oops, photo does not show at all). 
Card inside: Why wait any Yuzen paper, use it for trimming the inside. The leaf added as well.
See the Cuttlebug Dot embossed leaves where edges are sponged with brown ink:
How to make this card: Pretty simple................
 The leaves and button:
 Pop those pieces with foam tape:
 Hope you enjoyed this card......................have yourself a very crafty day!
