This card's background is 100% inspired by Margaret Wilburn's card: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ga...p?photo=363999
This is the first time I've tried the ghosting technique... love it in Margaret's colors.
My original skeleton leaf was too large and vanilla-ish color. First altered the size with scissors, cutting next to a pair of veins. Secondly, colored it choc chip with a brayer. Adhering this 'all exposed' puppy was the last challenge of this card... I ended up applying miniscule dots of acrylic medium down the center spine of the leaf on the back side... and so far so good.

I am SO thrilled to see someone CASE my card since I've been CASEing other people's cards for quite a while. Am absolutely going to steal your idea of coloring the skeleton leaf. I have some and don't use them because the colors are never right. The card is just perfect and the ribbon and hardware are just right!
