Using the leaf punch make 8 leaves from the cream card.
Colour the leaves and using the fine tip black pen draw the vanes on the leaves.

Using the Spellbinder Eyelet Squares die and the red paper cut out a background frame.
Thread a string of hessian through the hole down the side of the die cut and allow the end to stick out, repeat this for the other three edges.
Stick the die cut background onto the base card at a jaunty angle.

Colour a piece of cream card yellow and cut out a circle using the ring binder hole punch.
Bevel the yellow circle and stick onto the centre of the bow.

Cut the sentiments out and stick onto the base card.
