Leaves

 
Hi!
Welcome!
It's my turn to host the Addicted To CAS challenge.
I thought and thought and finally settled on the code word - LEAVES.
 
Our sponsor for this challenge is Create a Smile.
The prize is 12.50 euro ( 1 stamp set) to our winner!
 
Although I don't want to rake them, I do enjoy their beautiful coloring!
So, this is my leaf inspired card:
 
I chose a tan cardstock for my base, then stamped the leaf with VersaMark
and used black detail embossing powder.
The greeting was printed in word from my computer.
Now comes the fun part...a little bit of Quickie glue pen here and there and then smooshing
some foil metal flakes....I found a baggie full in my stash!
Here's a closer look:
I love the way the light catches them and makes them sparkle in real life.
 
of course I made a real mess...but that's how I knew I was having fun!!
 
Just in case you were wondering...
 this leaf stamp was made by a company called PSX
and I've had it since 1999.
 
 
Thanks for stopping by.
 
'till next time,
Doni
