Gently Falling CCMC276

There's a lovely Color Challenge over at Create with Connie and Mary today:  Real Red, Coastal Cabana and Smoky Slate.  I had the Gently Falling set out on my stamping desk so decided to go with a non-traditional fall get well card for a friend who just had surgery.

The larger Smoky Slate background was stamped with the lines from Gorgeous Grunge using Whisper White Craft Ink.  

The smaller Smoky Slate layer was stamped with the woven chevron stamp from the Truly Grateful set then lightly stamped with Coastal Cabana and the splatter stamp.  Whisper White cardstock was stamped with Coastal Cabana lines then the sentiment in Real Red.

The more solid leaf was stamped with Coastal Cabana and the outlines with Real Red then quickly heat embossed with Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder for some sparkle (which you can just barely see in the above picture)!  The narrow Real Red Ribbon and Rhinestones complete the card.
Stamps:  Gently Falling, Gorgeous Grunge, Express Yourself, Truly Grateful
Papers:  Real Red, Smoky Slate, Whisper White cardstock
Ink:  Real Red, Coastal Cabana,  Whisper White Craft
Accessories:  1/8" Real Red Taffeta Ribbon, Paper Snips, Rhinestones, Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder, Heat Tool.

Love how the white ink looks like "bleached" out areas on the card. Really gives a fun look! The addition of the glittery embossing powder really gives this card some great sparkle.

Like Lisa, I'm most taken with the white on the smoky slate...that's an awesome look! Very pretty non-traditional leaf card! Great job with the color challenge this week!

I thought you used bleach for your card! What a great background you created! And I love the addition of the rhinestones in the leaf - nice touch.

Love, love, love! I have never even given a thought to making a non-autumn leaf out of Gently Falling. Your card is just gorgeous!
