Thankful Leaves

After watching Lawn Fawn's Kelly Marie share her new leaf dies here,
I was inspired to play with them and created a card.

I think I'll enter this in Moxie Fab World's Handmade Cards: Color Media Challenge
just under the wire.


I die cut the set of leaves on several colors of Avery Elle cardstock
and ink distressed them with Wild Honey and Walnut Stain distress inks. 
I tried to form them as if they were floating down and the sentiment
is from Jane's Doodles.

And yes, I die cut pink and blue leaves! By the time they were ink distressed,
they took on colors of their own. A bit whimsical, perhaps, but I love 
how vibrant it looks.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
