I made this card by stamping the Repeat Impressions image of "Maple Leaf Silhouette" with Kaleidacolor Autumn Leaves dye ink onto 100% Cotton Cardstock Watercolor Paper (from my friends at Marco's Paper). I then took a waterbrush to the stamped image and moved the color around. I cut the leaf out with my Cutterbee scissors. I added a transparent brown button with a tied bow of hemp string to the leaf.
On a strip of white cardstock that I scored and framed with black cardstock, I stamped the Repeat Impressions sentiment "For the Beauty" with Versafine Onyx Black Pigment ink. Arranging the leaf onto the strip, I then adhered it to a kraft cardfront that was rounded at the bottom two corners with a punch.

Such a great card with the beautiful sentiment... Love the kraft and your leaf is absolutely gorgeous... We used to have a sugar maple in our yard, and it would have some of the most beautiful colors in its leaves.... this reminds me so much of it... Thanks for sharing.....
