Hello Friend

It's just a short post for me today.  It's one of those days where there is much to do and so little time in which to do it.  But, I wanted to share the card I designed using a stencil I made from various leaf dies.  It was a fun way to create my own background and use my Distress Oxide Inks.  I spritzed a bit of water onto the inks as well as added some drops of Glossy Accents all over the card front.  Of course, the Glossy Accents drops are not showing up well in the photograph.

Stamp Set:  None; Distress Oxide Inks:  Fired Brick, Frayed Burlap, Wild Honey, Worn Lipstick; Cardstock:  Baked Brown Sugar, Calypso Coral, Chocolate Chip, Sugar Cube; Other:  Assorted Leaves Dies (Darice), Friend Die (Taylored Expressions), Glossy Accents, Hello Die (Taylored Expressions), Seasonal Layers Thinlits Dies (Stampin' Up!)

I've entered my card in the following challenges.  For all the challenge details and to share your project, click the images below.

Thanks for stopping by the Coffee Pot Stamping Cafe,
