I used the new Seasonal Tree dies in my card today. The die consists of several different leaves, a tree and two adorable birds. I blended some ink onto a piece of cardstock and die cut a pile of leaves.  I machine-stitched (YES! I can finally operate a sewing machine!) the leaves in place. I love the look of machine stitching!

I used a gorgeous sentiment from the new stamp set Blossoming Buds to finish off my card.
