Die cut some leaves from the same piece of watercolored rice paper I used for the butterfly in my previous post - tipped them in gold and then designed the card.  The center panel is another piece of rice paper that I had watercolored with distress inks.
I am entering this in the Simon Says Stamp color coordinates challenge - my colors are much softer than the challenge colors tho - just find it hard to do those bright colors!!

Supplies: Cheery Lynn leaf and Essentials by Ellen Zipper Panel dies (sentiment only); Distress inks - wild honey, seedless preserves, ripe persimmon and shabby shutters; Neenah metallic and HA cardstock; Ranger liquid platinum embossing powder

Thanks for visiting and always enjoy your comments!  Betty
