SCRAMBLE #148

Today's scramble on the Hero Arts discussion group was to design a card by making your own background.  This has always been a challenge for me as I always seem to mess it up just when I think it's all good!!  And of course that is what happened - started it out in black and the third one I stamped didn't stamp all the way :(  So switched to gray which worked out much better.  

After stamping all the leaves, I added the sentiment on a piece of vellum and gold embossed.  Popped it up with some fun foam and finally added some black Nuvo dots (risky as I've been known to mess those up too!).  This actually was a very quick and easy card to make and plan on trying more with different leaves.

This also fits Muse Challenge203 as the background and a single sentiment are also prominent in the challenge - so will enter it there also.
 
Thanks for stopping by and love to read your kind comments.
