Stampin' Up! Colorful Seasons - stepped up

Hello, here are the details for our second project this week using the Colorful Seasons Bundle.

I particularly like the sentiments in this set, such lovely words that are suitable for many occasions.   Another thing I love about this set is the full stops at the end of the sentiments!

To create the leaf on the sentiment panel I used Old Olive ink - I stamped off the background leaf and then stamped the veins without stamping the ink off. This creates a much lighter background and helps you to see the sentiment which is always useful.

The other leaves had only a stamped off background image and then I added a die cut skeleton leaf in Old Olive.

I found a large bag of copper coloured sequins in my crafty stash - I am having a massive clear out and had forgotten I had them.  They seemed perfect for my project this week.

I confess I am not very good at 'random' so to achieve this I took a pinch of sequins and just dropped them.  I removed them one by one and stuck them to the card with Tombow.  

The inside and the envelope were also stamped to match.

Here is the completed card and envelope.  Hopefully you can see on the insert that I scuffed up the edges to add more texture.

Here are a few of the great cards my crafty ladies created this week.  Can you spot the upside down branch (I think it looks great)?
