Are you sure it isn't Autumn?

Evening Everyone,
I hope that you have had a wonderful Crafty Weekend. Well lets face it that is probably been all that you have been able to do given the weather, that's my excuse anyway.
I have been working hard on a couple of DT projects and also trying to get a heads up on a class for next month.
This card was inspired by some of the wonderful One Layer cards on the Penny Black Blog.
I masked the central panel and stamped my favourite leaves using a Creole Spice Kaleidacolor inkpad before sponging some colour using the same ink pad.
I added an embossed greeting, but you have to be careful with the clear embossing powder as it will stick everywhere if you have not used your anti static bag. I found out the hard way of course lol.
I also added a dry embossed line to either side of the panel.
As usual I found it hard to leave it as just one layer, so I added some embossed leaves in the corner to give depth, and a stitched line with a fine black pen.
It's still raining here, let's hope that it is better tomorrow.
Night night
hugs Kimx
