The Clean and Simple challenge on Splitcoaststampers was to use red, brown, kraft, and ivory, with optional orange. The Create blog challenge was to make a card with leaves. I wanted to go clean and simple anyway, so this was a perfect choice. The card is A2 size with a kraft base, dark chocolate mat, and a vanilla woodgrain panel. The woodgrain impression plate is so useful. I'm not really sure how I ever made cards without it. I stamped over the impression in Memento Rich Cocoa ink. There were a few blank spots and I was able to fill those in with a Stampin' Up! Chocolate Chip marker. So happy about that! The leaves are colored with Copics and trimmed out. I purposely did not glue the tips down so it looks like the leaves are just resting on the card. I think I will make up a few of these to have on hand for the future.
