LIGHTHEARTED LEAVES – Mojo Monday #414

It's the end of the holiday weekend and I hope yours went well. It's been a hot one here in Indiana, temps have been in the 90's for the past 6 days.  Good day to stay inside and prepare for an upcoming card class and workshop and enter the Mojo Monday card challenge.

I'm over summer and getting ready for my favorite season,Fall. I love when the colors change to the rich reds, yellows, and oranges as the air becomes crisp and light jackets and sweaters are needed. It was the thought of Fall that influenced my entry this week.

#414-Lighthearted Leaves

I stamped the large oak leave from the Lighthearted Leaves stamp set in VersaMark on watercolor paper and embossed it with gold embossing powder. I then water colored it with inks from the Regals Collection, Always Artichoke, Cajun Craze, Crushed Curry, and Perfect Plum. I cut it out using the Leaflets Framelits but I didn't like the white edge the framelits left so I added Crushed Curry to the edge as well. The card base and accent piece was Cajun Craze with gold foil and Delightful Dijon Dotted Lace Trim (don't you just love that ribbon?) as embellishments.  What do you think? I like the way it turned out. See all the fabulous creations from a group of very talented designers at http://mojomonday.blogspot.com/
