Leaves

Hi everyone. My card today is for the SCS Ways to use it challenge where the theme is leaves with a hint of pink for Breast Cancer Awareness Month and also for the SCS weekly sketch challenge. I used two leaves from a Kars stamp set, the large leaf is stamped in Smoky brown versafine, sponged with Distress inks, Worn lipstick, dried marigold and mustard seed and cut out. Two panels for the sketch had the same stamping and sponging treatment with the other leaf stamp. I edged everything with black soot ink, added the sentiment panel, the popped up single leaf and other flowers and pearls. Edged the sentiment panel with sticky ribbon (not too evenly by the looks of the photo!). Touched some of the flowers lightly with black ink and added stickles to finish. Hope you all have a great weekend. TFL.

Back soon,
Chris
