Grateful Leaves


This is me Design Team card for Pile It On the challenge this week is to create a card or project with a fall theme and to use one or more leaves.  Of course you need to incorporate at least one other challenge, I did a total of nine challenges.  I was so happy when my Gina K Designs order arrive on Friday afternoon so I was able to use Festive Frame Melanie Muechinger's newest stamp set. This is a large background frame stamp it has poinsettias in the corners and as I needed to use leaves and a fall theme I stamped the leaves from Signs of Autumn cut them out and place them over the poinsettias.  I did need to color the poinsettias like the leaves so that the little parts the could be seen would appear to be more leaves.  Next I colored in the borders to look like there are brown mats, and then carefully sponged with more mustard outside of the oval.  It is hard to tell in this photo but I used a clear glaze pen on the red berries, which really made them pop.  Thanks for stopping by.
