This card was based off of this week's sketch challenge. I really liked the challenge because I could see all sorts of neat ways to use different stamps for it. I just made the one card so far, it took a little longer than I intended, but I'm really happy with it. I used faux stitching, distressing, poppin' pearls, embossing and poly shrink on here. The card is actually slightly smaller than the standard size. I started with a scrap piece of decorated black paper, and just cut it while not really paying attention... Oops! So the whole card is about a 1/4 smaller than the normal. The leaf charm is the polyshrink, I stamped the leaf in gold ink than shrank away. The big leaf is in burgundy with gold ink on the tips, it gives it a lovely subtle shine. I also used the 4 seasons paper on here. I coated the one side with pearlex alcohol spray.
