Grateful for You

I'm back with another CAS card today. This one is for The Paper Players CAS Challenge #267 - Leaves.

I created the leaves from the Tim Holtz Tattered Leaves Bigz die. One leaf was die cut from pattern paper, sprayed with Perfect Pearls and crumpled. The middle leaf was die cut from a piece of embossed and ink distressed paper. The third leaf was die cut from a piece of paper that had been stamped with a text stamp, distress inked and crumpled. I love the dimension you achieve by crumpling and then flattening paper back out, don't you?

The leaves were then tied together with May Arts Natural Twine. Again I used the Fun Stampers Journey Ink Splat stamp in the middle of a kraft card base. I adhered the leaves over the ink splat and added some pearl dots to further embellish the splatter effect.

I am also entering this card into Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Wrap It Up and Pixie's Snippets Playground #199. All of my leaves began as snippets of paper. 

Only 1 more day until the weekend. I can't wait! Enjoy!
