Get well wishes

Hello! Here is my take on this weeks Freshly Made Sketch!

I just got the new fall leaves dies from My Favorite Things in the mail and had to play with them. I used distress inks to create the fall colors.

Sentiment is from Papertrey, Ink. I did use different sizes of thickness in the foam tape to pop up these leaves with. I really like the embossing of the veins in the leaves that these dies provide. Gives it a more realistic look.

Distress inks used:
Vintage photo, scattered straw, spiced marmalade and festive berries.

Kept this very clean and simple which I think would work really well for a masculine card.

Ok, that's it for now. Thanks for stopping by.

Very pretty - I love to work with leaf stamps - and especially if they have a die to go with them. Love the veins on the leaves too.
