Vintage Leaves, A Sympathy Card and Heartfelt Sympathy

Vintage Leaves

We are enjoying a beautiful autumn here in Ohio, but for the next day or so we will be experiencing a fair amount of rain, so our foliage probably won't be as bright.  Thus, it seemed appropriate to make today's Sympathy Card a little more subdued with just a bit of shine.

Heartfelt Sympathy

First, I embossed all my Vintage Leaves and my Heartfelt Sympathy with Silver embossing powder.  Then, I daubed my leaves with Cajun Craze and Mint Macaron Ink and cut them with my Leaflet Framelits.  And finally, I embossed my card base with the Woodland Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  For a complete list of supplies scroll to the bottom of this post.


Color Throwdown

Today's color palette was inspired by Color Throwdown.




I've been a little preoccupied making memories with 4 of my grandchildren this past week, so if I've been a little slower getting back to you, please understand.  I do appreciate you.


Have a fabulous day!
