A Blog Named Hero has a fun challenge this month - Monochromatic!!!  I played around with quite a few ideas because I wanted to use fall leaves and really wasn't coming up with anything that I really liked.  Then my Deco Pattern Stencil arrived, got out my Autumn Icons dies and some Nuvo mousse and it all came together quickly.

I used a very thin layer of the mousse with a palette knife to create the background.  Die cut the ginkgo leaf from gold adhesive backed paper and also from fun foam and put them together for some extra texture.  Added the little sentiment and done!!

Be sure to enter your monochromatic card in our challenge by 10 October for a chance to win great prizes - a $50 and a $25 gift certificate from Hero Arts!

I am also entering this in the SSS Wednesday Challenge which is "anything goes" and featuring Hero Arts.

Thanks for stopping by and love to read your comments - they make my day!
