Time to Celebrate


Still playing with autumn and Distress Inks, this time casing Kathy Racoosin's card for CASE Study:

I'd already made the banner for another card a couple of weeks ago and never used it, so I stamped some leaves to match, using Peeled Paint, Spiced Marmalade and Mustard Seed, then cut them out.  I part-coloured the sentiment with markers.  The leaves didn't want to lie flat, so I just attached them at the centre.  Makes them look like they're falling.

The current challenge at CAS-ual Fridays is fall colours and at least one leaf:


The challenge at Addicted to CAS is Autumn/Fall:
And Simon Says Anything Goes!


Hero Arts: Tweed Pattern
Lili of the Valley: Set 9 Mixed Circular Sentiments
Leaf - magazine freebie
