CYCI#88 Challenge-Anything Goes

Happy Sunday!! It is a beautiful, fall day here in New England. What I would view as a "perfect" day, though I know others like the warmer weather. I like it crisp enough to have to wear a sweater and some socks!!

Today I am sharing a card that I created using scraps from the mess on my desk. I created this card for a challenge. I had made paper and then die cut leaves. I had the paper left and thought, why should I throw it out? Instead, I decided to use it to make a card.

The first thing I did to create this was to die cut two leaves from patterned paper scraps using Paper Trey Ink's "Leaf Silhouette" dies. I then die cut a mask and inked the leaves using Distress Ink.

I used an A2 sized "Soft Stone" card base and used a stencil with some soft stone ink on the background. I then stamped the sentiment.

I adhered some orange stripe pattered paper scrap onto the card front and the inked strip over it that. Next I used some foam adhesive to adhere the leaves. I then put a bit of sparkle with Wink of Stella over the leaves. My last step was to adhere some clear sequins to the card front.

I LOVE how this card turned out. It was one of the easiest I have ever made. I challenge you to use some scraps from your stash to make a card. I am entering this into CYCI#88-Anything Goes Challenge.

I want to apologize for my being behind on commenting. I have had a lot of stuff going on and it has impacted my computer time. I so hate that!! I know I won't be able to catch up but hopefully I will be able to stay on top of this weeks creations.

I hope you enjoy the rest of our day!
