I do have a few sets of leaves, but I decided to have a play. I found some clipart of two leaves and printed it onto plain paper. I cut the leaves leaving a stencil which I attached to my card. I inked through the stencil with a few distress inks and then stamped some images - they're faint, but they are there! Next I put one of the cut out leaves on the edge of the card - as though it is falling off - and stippled some colour around the edge of the leaf - leaving a ghostly leaf image. I added some colour to the other cut out leaf and attached it in front of the two stenciled images. While I know this is a one layer card - there is no actual depth to the leaf, it lies flat on the card. I had to add the leaf, as the card looked unbalanced without it! Finally I added a sentiment.

I've just had a quick look at the LIM blog - and I'm really quite late with my card - but it's been a busy old weekend. That's all for now. I'm off to put some more washing into the machine and then back into my craft room. I really do have to get my design cards made as it's only a week until Kathryn and I fly to the US!!!! Can you tell I'm excited? See you later!
