This is for the inspiration challenge and I linked the thread so you can see the inspiration photo in the first post.
Iíve never cased the photo before, just took inspiration from it and created my card but when I saw this weekís photo I loved it and knew right away which set I wanted to use. I just got the set so itís also my first upload using it. The challenge for me this week was how to achieve the colors and layout and I must say I learned some new things and I experimented. Hey, thatís what a challenge is all about! And who would have thought Iíd have just the perfect leaf stamp to match the photo. This was fun, thanks Karen!
I used tan, black and red cardstock. The brown and large stamped red is the tan with color brayered on, then sponged with black. The copper, light yellow, black lines and heart are embossed. I used an embossing pen for the dots

Great job Rox! I wanted Hand Painted Petites so bad when it was retiring, but I didn't get it -- what a perfect match! And I just love the sentiment you went with; the leaves to the sides of the greeting are a perfect little touch! Love it! Thanks for playing!
