This is my card for Susie's HYCCT1429 challenge. She wants us to create a card making our own background...without using designer paper on the background.
For my card I used the Stampin-Up set "fantastic foliage" and stamped a leaf background with cajun craze and wild honey inks.
I used the Cuttlebug folder "autumn type" for my middle panel. The "grateful" word is cut from a PTI die in cajun craze and choc chip.
The maple leaf is cut from a Spellbinders die and i sponged distress inks over it-peeled paint, fired brick, rusty hinge and wild honey. I rubbed some Versamark over that and then used clear ep and embossed it. IRL it is really shiny. I like the way it turned out. I saw this technique used by Kittie747on her blog.
Finished my card by adding some peach parfait ribbon. That's my card for this challenge.

Oh Mary this is so beautiful. I love the colours you achieved with the distress inks. Your stamped background is fabulous, everything about your card makes me smile. Thanks so much for joining in my HYCCT challenge.
Please don't take your organs to heaven - heaven knows we need them here.
