Challenge #13 at Crafting with Dragonflies.

 
Crafting With Dragonflies Challenge Blog
 
Again this last fortnight seems to have flown by and it is again
 
Time for ANOTHER CHALLENGE.
 
This time Hilde has made it so easy by asking us to make a card with
 
NATURE/TREES/LEAVES.
 
A bonus for the design team with this challenge we got to do our own thing and
Hilde is so generously awarding a prize for the WINNER.
 
As it is getting into fall over the pond and Spring has sprung here
it is a perfect time to get into the colourful time it is.
Let our imagination run wild.
 
Here is my inspiration for this challenge.
 

I made this card some time ago as I was playing around
 with stamps and various inks to see what effect they would have.
 
I started with a cream card stock as my base.
Added green backing to K&Company Fall/Harvest dp
Various colours of Distress Inks were stamped with
GinaK Fall Foliage Stamps & Sentiment .
Spellbinders Flourish
Added a little sparkle with a gold gel pen.
Finished with Kaisercraft Pearls
and variegated cotton bow. 
 
 Here is a close up look at my leaves.
 
Before I close I would like to welcome 2 New Members to
The Dragonflies Team.
They are Sammy and Wynn.
 
As usual you can check out all the DT's projects on the right hand side bar.
 
 
Thanks for popping in and hope to see what you create over at
