Leafy Thanks

Hi and welcome.  I'm here with a card for the latest challenge at Freshly Made Sketches, where Cecile Ribon is our hostess.

For my card, I started with a Steel Gray card base and stenciled over the top with some translucent embossing paste and the English Brick Wall stencil. 

While that was drying, I die-cut some leaves from white cardstock and stamped and embossed a sentiment, before arranging it all onto the card base.  

Another simple card.  The DT have some beautiful cards, so I hope you'll check them out.

Products used:

Stamps:  Leaf Canopy (Altenew)
Ink:  Versamark
Cardstock:  Steel Gray, Black Licorice, Smooth White (MFT)
Dies:  Lorelei Leaves, Lorelei Leaves Outline (Memory Box)
Accessories:  English Brick Wall Stencil (MFT), Translucent Embossing Paste, White Embossing Powder

Such a striking take on the sketch, Karren! I love the effects of translucent embossing paste for the brick wall...especially on steel gray, and the contrast of the white leaves is amazing! Another beautiful card!
