Less is More...leaves



Finally I got a chance today to make a card for the Less Is More challenge! I've misssed a few weeks.

This weeks challenge is a one layer card using LEAVES.

I decided to try the thumping technique I saw over at Stamp TV. I stamped the leaf in SU summer sun, then "thumped" on top of that with SU real red, old olive, and pumpkin pie markers. I added some green bakers twine on the stem.

I'm off to check out the other cards...I love to see what everyone else comes up with!
