For my next trick.....
This is a card I made for my SIL and BIL for their anniversary on Wednesday. They had a fall wedding so every year, I try to make them a fall-themed card. This one was insprired by a card I found here. My pictures didn't turn out as well. Natural, non-direct sunlight is the best to photograph your projects. Too bad I'm a night owl!!

Anyway, I used Tim Holtz alcohol inks (Butterscotch, Wild Plum, Cranberry) on glossy photo paper to create the background for the leaf. The leaf was stamped with my brand new CTMH Nature's Vein, then heat embossed with clear powder. I stamped the veins using brown Staz-On. The leaf was stamped with Versamark ink on regular cardstock that I sponged with 3 different ink colors-CTMH Hollyhock, SU So Saffron and CTMH Sunflower. I dry embossed scraps of cardstock using the Cuttlebug Stylized Flowers embossing folder for the 4 squares and brown cardstock for the matting and background. The tag was a chipboard tag I found in my collection that I swiped with Colorbox inks and stamped with a phrase from CTMH From Me to You. I finished it off with some brown ribbon. I cut out the leaf shape and raised it with pop dots, then popped up the entire center mat image.

I hope you like it!! It's really much prettier in person. I'll have to keep working on my photography skills or at least take my pics during the day :)!
