In need of a dire break from writing, I decided to get crafty and create a card for this week's Peachy Keen challenge! This week's challenge is all about creating cards with leaves:
I'll be honest and say that I'm sort of over making fall cards and ready to start working on holiday projects, but I am totally in love with how this card turned out! Using Echo Park's Fall Reflections paper, I created a leaf wreath by cutting leaves with my Cameo and embellishing them with some Distress Stickles for texture.
The Distress Stickles I used are Scattered Straw, Walnut Stain, and Aged Mahogany. I love the textured, subtle sparkly look it gives the leaves, as if they were picked up fresh off the ground on a fall day. The 'So Blessed' sentiment is from Peachy Keen's October stamp set of the month.
The sentiment is a great reminder that even though life seems pretty rough sometimes (especially recently), that I am truly blessed with great friends and family, a hobby that I love, and a future career I cannot wait to pursue. A perfect card to kick off the month of thanks!
Have a lovely rest of your weekend. :)
