Maple leaves

   The theme for this fornight's challenge at Crafty Cardmakers is autumn colours.
   I used a maple die from Crafter's Companion and used it to randomly punch leaves from white card and after dusting it with various Distress inks matted and layered it onto copper mirri and white card. I cut a number of leaves, stamped veins on them and coloured them using Distress inks. Finally I added a sentiment.

   I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
   Creative Inspirations - anything goes
   Digi Choosday - anything goes
   The Crafter's Cafe - autumn and/or spring
   Digi  Designs - fall/autumn
   Lemon Shortbread - anything goes
   Fabrika Fantasy - autumn
   Creatalicious - anything goes with optional circles
   Sparkles - dies or punches
   Make My Monday - autumn/fall
