Scrapology - December Card Challenge

This month on Scrapology Chrissy from Merly Impresssions is our card sponsor. She challenged the team (and readers also joining in) to create a card using the theme of 'Leaves, leaf shapes & leaf colours'.

It took quite a while for inspiration to strike, but finally one weekend I saw some sparkly leaves on Ebay and I came up with an idea.I think the leaves were intended to be used on floristry but thought one would looked lovely mounted on the front of a card.

I used some papers from Cosmo Cricket's 2007 Be Good Christmas collection to mat and layer and added some ribbon (saved from a toiletries set last Christmas) , some self adhesive pearls from The Hobby House and a peel off sticker. A very simple A5 size card but I quite like it and it's so sparkly in real life.

Please go over to Scrapology and look at the rest of the teams cards and have a go at making a card yourself using the theme of 'Leaves, leaf shapes & leaf colours'. You could win a lovely set of paper and embelishments from Kaisercraft's Cockadoodledoo range.
