Greetings

        CAS(E) this sketch
I was inspired by the following three challenges
to make my card
I sprayed water colour card with Lindy's Stamp gang sprays, 
with mica in them and then used the 'Maple Leaf'  die
from Poppystamps to cut out the leaf.
The die cuts with an outline so I also die cut 
a piece of gold card to use as the outline.
I popped hessian at the back of the leaf and twine.
The small maple leaves have been stamped 
using distress markers in three colours
and represent the three small dots in the sketch.
The mica in the sprays are so pretty.
I have entered the Poppy stamps challenge three times 
but hopefully they are all very different?
I am loving these dies and its that time of year to use them!
