Fab'n'Funky Challenges #135 - Use Leaves Somewhere

Hi Everyone,

I can't believe how fast that last week has gone!  And we are around to the next challenge on Fab'n'Funky Challenges already.  It's a good one too!  If you haven't checked out the winners of the last challenge head over to the Challenge blog.

We have the extremely talented Pat K as our host this week and she has chosen a fab challenge...

Use Leaves Somewhere

You can use any kind of leaves you like in any way but just make sure they appear on your project.  We have a great sponsor too - Bugaboo.  The DT were so lucky to have some gorgeous digi stamps to use.  It was so hard to choose though!

I made this card using BBrat girl flower sitter as she was super cute.  I chose an autumnal colour pallete and was pleased with how she turned out.  Unfortunately I put the list of ProMarkers that I used out with the rubbish.  D'oh!  The ones I can remember are Forest Green, Gold, Lipstick Red, Ruby, Blush, Dusky Pink, Bright Orange, Cinnamon and Henna.  My little image is sitting on a Spellbinders Floral Ovals die-cut.

I made the background paper using elements from the My Craft Studio Artiste Collection CD-ROM.  The ribbon came from some packaging.  I mounted onto gold mirri-card and then onto a white card blank.  I used a corner punch to round the edges.

I can't wait to see what leafy wonders you all come up with for this challenge.  Be sure to check out the other DT creations.

Happy crafting,
Rachel x
