Joanne has a wonderful variety themed board for us at the TicTacToe challenge #134 this week.  I went right across the middle with leaves, thanks and shades of brown.

I haven't used my ginkgo leaves from a PTI set (Harvest Berries) for ages - so pulled them out and die cut from watercolor paper.  Smooshed them around in some greens and then used a colored pencil for some shading.  Did the same with the orangey stalks in the background.  Made the background with a plaid die mounted on the same kraft color card base.  Then arranged my leaves in the copper pot, added the sentiment and a few sequins and done!

Have some fun creating a card with the ideas from our board this week and enter our challenge for a chance to a future guest designer.



  1. I love ginkgo and I love your card. I once had three gingko trees, unfortunately they died last year when it was so hot. And did you know that you can also make tea from ginkgo? I have already drunk it in several variations, very tasty.

  2. I adore ginko leaves...this is lovely Betty.

  3. Your card is amazing Betty. Love those gingko leaves.

  4. Oh wow--didn't even realize those leaves were from Harvest Berries! LOVE this!


Thanks so much for taking the time to leave comments - they make my day!
