Soft Leaves



So glad I get the DeNami In Touch newsletter as it included the info on their WCMD challenge a day ahead.  I got my card made on Friday instead trying to do it after work on Saturday.  I chose the "buttons, green, stripes" row. I love these beautiful leaves (DeNami Elegant Autumn Scene) & it's easy to ink them without the included sentiment which I will use on the inside.  I love tone on tone which I achieved by clear embossing & then coloring with a Memento New Sprout marker.  Love this striped paper which is old & almost used up now. I've also been hoarding these tiny buttons--aren't they cute?  I decided stitching might detract from the subtle leaves, so just pierced the rows & popped up the panel. Hope you have a fun day that includes some crafting.  
I'm off to work but will check on what you've been up to when I get home.  
Thanks for your visit.
