A few weeks ago my friend Betty sent Greta and I some beautiful lacy leaves. They are delicate and mine are a gradient of blue/teal to gold tips. Betty challenged us all to make a card with the leaves and to all post them today.
As I looked at these gorgeous delicate leaves I noticed a few of them had a bit of damage at the tips fortunately this worked for my design and I didn't have to feel bad about snipping a bit off.
I arranged three leaves on a white card base with the points overhanging and trimmed. Then I gold heat embossed a flower spray and a sentiment. I fussy cut the spray, adhered it over the leaves, and finished it off with the pale gray sentiment strip embossed with the same gold. I tried the sentiment strip with white and it just looked odd. The pale gray though darker than the white added lift to the card somehow - took it from flat to elegant in my opinion.
Now go take a peek at Betty's card here, and Greta's card here. I'll bet they both have something fabulous posted.
Betty thank you so much for these leaves, and for the fun challenge!
I am entering this card to : The Flower Challenge and Stamping Sensations.
Thanks for visiting!
