This card is made with help from Mother Nature. :-) The background is a piece of birch bark. The leaf was made with a real leaf. I ran the leaf through my BIGkick and it embossed it. It didn't leave much color, though, so I added ink to the leaf two times using different colors and placed it back over the embossed image. I added the sentiment, stamped in a gray to match the birch bark, matted the panel and mounted it on foam squares. It was pretty fun. I have some other leaf prints to use on my next cards. The sentiment is from an older Gina K set.
Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!
