The card that I made went to another friend from my stamping group who recently lost her sister-in-law. I inked up the stamp with Close to Cocoa ink from Stampin' Up! Before stamping with it, I "thumped " on the leaves with three colors of SU! markers - Old Olive, More Mustard and Really Rust. I colored the small, open leaves and the pine cone with markers. The sentiment is also stamped with Close to Cocoa. The matting is Chocolate Chip. I used ivory cardstocks. For the background, I used a Fiskars texture plate. Before embossing, I brayered it with Close to Cocoa ink.

You have until tomorrow evening to submit your card for the Designer's Choice Challenge to use an animal on your card or project. This would earn you a chance to win a full sheet of unmounted rubber. You can find those details here. You also have just over a week to participate in the WHAT IF? Wednesday challenge for a chance to win a $25 gift certificate. Details for that challenge are here.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

Such a pretty card. I love that thumping technique - just wish I would remember it more often. You are so good. I have not gotten a card off for Kris yet.

Love that image! I've never done the "thumping" technique but saw it again on a video recently. Great card!
