Double D Leave it to me... Challenge

'LEAVE' it to me . . .
(Use leaves on your card/project.)

We have another fabulous mood board for you over at Double D Challenge Blog . For some reason  the picture of the kraft and white leaves kept drawing my eye so I decided to use that for my inspiration. 




I started by embossing pieces of kraft and orange card and then swiped the top of the embossing with a white ink pad. Then I cut the two pieces diagonally and put them on a green card base. I actually got two cards by doing this. I glued some white card to double sided adhesive and cut out the PTI thanks ,Frantic stamper leaves,and Memory Box flower border. Then I burnished them with some guilding flakes glued them to my card. 

Inside of the card





Both Darlene and Diane try to match the prizes for the challenge with the theme of the challenge.This IO leaf die is a perfect prize for this challenge. We hope you will join us for this challenge.

  7. You were beautifully inspired! I love how you used the flower border with the thanks curved along it. I have that flower border, but would I have ever thought to use it like this? Probably not. You're amazing with your dies. Those gilding flakes are gorgesous and I really love the filigree leaves.
