Wishing......

    Wish you were here
Update...I am thrilled and honoured to be a 'Cut Above' 
at The Paper Players with this card, thank you very much x
I have made this card using a colour theme, 
technique and on a one layer challenge.
I die cut the mini maple leaf using Poppy Stamps Maple Leaf Border die 
out of scrap card and used this as my stencil.
I sponged the colours from The Paper Players Colour 
Theme Challenge, using the stencil.
The sentiment is from a Clearly Besotted stamp set.
The gold has been embossed around the edges to give the appearance 
of another layer but it is a One Layer Card.
The colours on my blog don't look like the challenge colours 
but that always seems to be a problem for me and my camera!

Love the design of this card and the gold embossing around the edge is a clever idea to keep the card one layer. The leaves are really beautiful. xx

What a pretty trio of sponged falling leaves. The embossed edge is a lovely finishing touch and really does appear to add another layer to your card - very clever. Thanks for joining my colour challenge over at The Paper Players this week!

Great blending within your leaf stencil and the gold edging works so well with those colours. Perfect CAS card.
