Autumn Thank You

A very quick card I made yesterday, not overly keen on it but I think its because I'd had a headache and hoped crafting would take my mind of it alas it didn't and the end result was a mediocre card - I guess we all get those days.

I did make the background paper by using various ink pads in Autumnal shades and edged them in gold pearlescent paint dabbing off the excess.  I cut the lager leaf die out of the card base and attached the remaining coloured card behind it with 3D foam.

Added a few gold paint splatters, distressed the bottom edge of the card and the sentiment is from Altenew and at least I have a 'thank you' card to hand when needed :)

  3. I think this is far from mediocre -this is a great design!! I love the dark card base, your colors really pop, and I also love your use of dies -the negative cut was a wonderful idea. Love the splatters too. Thanks for joining us at Less Is More!

  4. Beautiful card with this lovely contrast with the black and the bright colours ! The golden splatters are the perfect final touch to keep it CAS ! Great take on our challenge. Thanks for sharing and for playing along at Less is More !

  6. I love the autumn burst of color with the leaves on black and those gold spatters add just the right amount of interest. Beautiful card!

  7. Mediocre my left foot! This is beautiful. I love the leaf cut out and then the two smaller on the front. Gorgeous background to boot too. Hope your over your headache now. Nasty things when they strike. Hugs Mrs A.
