Hello again, dear Friends!
I'm back with the second card I was able to make, and thought I'd share it now. The card will be given soon, but I've already missed the challenge, bummer! I guess that'll teach me one of these days to wait til the last minute - ha! This card used a couple of snippets out of my box, a win of sorts, right?!
I drug the two leaves, already stamped/embossed/colored/winked out of the box and thought they fit for a masculine card. Now what? Hmmm I found the sketch over at FMS480 and liked that I could change it up a bit but still work.
I used papers from HB Autumn Afternoon, which matched the leaves well. What you can't see is the winking! The left leaf actually is winked in gold and the right leaf winked in clear sparkle -- it works well with the golden honeycomb bg paper. To match, I used another paper from the same pack, although my lighting REALLY changed the color from a deeper green to what you see - almost a marine blue -- oh well! I used a couple of matching snippets to pop up the sentiment over the leaves.
