another one layer card. . . .

to submit to the Hero Arts challenge which ends today:


The leaf spray is a Hero Arts cling stamp that is part of a set; but I neglected to document the set when I stored these stamps.  I stamped it three times - the first in mowed lawn distress ink, then Hero Arts cornflower blue and the third stamping is a second generation stamping using moss green distress ink.  The Hero Arts sentiment was black heat embossed.  The sequins mimic the colors and I was happy to find three different sizes.

This card turned out to be one of my favorite CAS cards I've ever made.  I love how it looks like the dark green spray is raised from the surface of the card.

Also sending it over to Less is More for their foliage challenge.

Have a wonderful Sunday afternoon!

Joy you knocked it out of the park. I honestly thought at first glance that it was a suspended die.
