Hi Folks! Unfortunately with the lack of rain we had in August and September, the leaves in the Midwest never really got to show off their brilliant orange and red hues. Instead, many of them went right from green to brown. So sad! It definitely got me yearning for and searching out those wonderful colors, in real life AND in my craft room!
For these colorful leaves I made a stencil from one of the leaves in Acorn Fri-Dies and sponged lots of Catherine Pooler Ink inside. The leaf vein from Autumn Blessings is stamped with the same ink color that was sponged to make the leaf. For the main sentiment I used So Pretty, and I was happy to realize that the secondary sentiments from Shalom work perfectly for birthday cards as well!
To finish it off I splashed some gold Glitter Mist, covering up the sentiment first so the splatters just stayed on the leaf part of the card, and added some sequins.
This card is also over at the CAS-ual Fridays Stamps blog today if you'd like additional information. Feel free to use my code "KELLY2017" which will save you 15% off any purchases at CAS-ual Fridays Stamps.
