You Are a Blessing
A panel of white cardstock was stamped with a leaf design in two colors. The third color was achieved by second generation stamping with the taupe ink. A panel of blue cardstock was also stamped with a tiny leaf design in matching ink and applied to the card base. Another panel was adhered, offset toward the lower left and then the focal panel was adhered. In keeping with the sketch, three strips of banners were added, two with stamped designs on them. A blue leaf was stamped, heat embossed with a sentiment in silver powder, fussy cut and applied. It was intended to be applied over the center stamped leaf but due to a taupe thumbprint, it had to be used for cover up instead. A happy accident? I'm not so sure! Finally the three silver sequins were added. The inside of the card base was lined with white cardstock and decorated with stamps.
