This card is for the VSN pre-challenge on a fall card. I cut two squares from coordinating paper and put copper square brads in opposing corners, then mounted to a sage card. I inked one leaf in dark moss and stamped once on scrap then onto a beige panel. Then I inked another stamp by stippling the brown and moss inks and then blending slightly with a tissue, and stamped on the opposite corner. For the last leaf I inked half in moss and half in brown, blended the center with a tissue, and inked over the other leaves. I inked the sentiment in moss on a separate scrap. I edged both in brown and mounted to the card. The falling leaf was actually an afterthought - I had another two-color leaf from a previous attempt so I cut it out and mounted in the corner with a foam dot.
My DH thought the card looked better oriented vertically - if you go to the previous image in my gallery you can see for yourself. I'd love to know which you think looks better.

There are some people who just cannot stand anything out of place or off center or stamped off the edge - or in this case - words sideways! I think this looks terrific this way - it's 'different' not what most people would do - but some people would have to turn it !! LOL!
