Last week and this past weekend feel like one big blur, so I was extremely glad to crave out a bit of time this afternoon in the stamp room for this quick card.
This was for the color challenge, and I subbed distress inks in forest moss, fired brick and scattered straw. I did the wrinkle free distress technique for the squares using watercolor paper, but instead of using plain water I used water mixed with gold perfect pearls.
I punched the squares and the leaves out, then used a black sharpie to edge all of the punched pieces to help them stand out a bit more.
Thanks for the beautiful fall color palette this week!

Wow! Beautiful and such a lovely layout.
Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. ~Leo Buscaglia
