One Last Challenge for Today

One last card for today. This one is for the Verve Project Parade Challenge in October. To make the background, I took a piece of scrap cardstock and cut out leaves using Cuttlebug dies. I used the cardstock as a stencil and sponged/stippled to my heart's content using nearly every Earth Elements color in the orange/yellow/red family. After adding the leaves, I sponged in lightly all around them to cover the entire background. The images are from Papertrey's Spiral Bouquet set. It's a pretty simple card. I used a Creative Memories corner punch on the vellum layer. The black brads and 7/8" black satin ribbon are from Pink Hedgehog Paper Crafts.
