Scrapbook Sisters Card Challenge 54 - Leaves


It's Wednesday so that can only mean it's time for another Scrapbook Sisters Card Challenge, which this week is 

LOL, we are sure to be covered in them soon, so why not add a leaf or two to your crafty projects this week and join in the dun?

I decided to keep to an autumnal colour pallet this week- although summer is making a late burst this week in my little corner of the world, we are sure to be covered with leaves before long!!

This pic so does not do this card justice, but I was forced to use the flash which is hiding all of the lovely detail... boo, don't you just hate it when working gets in the way of taking a decent picture of your creation!!  

I made a circular card with the aid of my little compass cutter thingy and then cut a brown mat and then stamped loads of leaves using a freebie stamp from Craft Stamper a couple of months back in Cocoa Momento and then rubbed Tea Dye, Vintage Photo and Antique Linen distress inks all over them.  I cut them out and covered half with Glossy Accents and half with Crackle Accents and left them to dry while I sorted the centre of the card out which is a Whimsy download which has been printed out, distressed, and I've added a couple of gems to the centre of the flowers.

I really love the effect the GA and CA have added to the flowers - they really look like fresh and dried out leaves that have fallen, prefect for the season :-D

Thanks for stopping by
