This is another result of several happy accidents - but it's turned out to be one of my favourite cards ever. You can't see it in the photo but there is detailed gold EP sprinkled all over the leaves - the ink was a bit sticky so the powder stuck.

I really like this card. If i'd seen it in person I would have thought you did the embossing on purpose since I do that all the time. When you plan to do it and the powder has nothing to stick to just heat it from underneath. I also like the message layers and green watercolor look.

I just love the leaves and the layering for the words. Isn't it funny how sometimes we try to design a card and it comes so difficult and looks so ho hum. Then something like this happens and it turns out tremendous! Into my inspiration file it goes.
