October 1, 2015 Thankful for You Leaf


Similar but not the same - this is another leaf card where I used the negative to color in my leaf then I stamped the leaf image over it in dk. brown ink.  Embossed the sentiment and added a thin gold embossed strip to the right side.  I very very seldom do one layer cards but I love the way this one turned out. Plus I don't often do leave white space either I always want to add more but this one looks finished to me.  Challenges:
     Live,LoveCards - white space
     Chouxchous Paper Art - Fall or Halloween
