Hi everyone this my card for Lori's HYCCT challenge to use leaves on your card and Joan's TLC challenge to create a background with a home made stencil.
I punched a leaf at the end of a strip of paper with my Carl punch and just randomly went around the base card first sponging SU Crumb Cake over the stencil and then Soft Suede around the edges.
I then cut my centre leaf and backed it with the other half of the A4 background rainbow paper from the previous HYCCT challenge card "In The Clouds".
I stamped the quote across the bottom of this piece and went over it again heat embossing it with clear powder.
I then stamped three different leaves from the leaf block onto some water colour paper heat embossing with gold powder.
I sprayed the leaves with water from a mini mister then added a little ink from the SU reinkers to get autumn tones added the raffia and brad and put it all together (I did leave the leaves to dry over night before I cut them out)
Thanks Lori and Joan for great challenges, I really enjoyed coming up with this card and thought it might be a nice one for someones husband, the quote sais " Nothing is worth more than this day" - Goutha
Thanks for looking
