Papertrey ink fabulous day card

Hello everyone and a warm welcome to Jackie who is a new follower this week.

I hope you are enjoying some good weather as summer starts to fade. We have a had a lovely week in Manchester but the forecast is for a change next week so we have been taking advantage of it and therefore I have not had as much crafting time as I would like.

I'd like to thank Mandi and Chrissie over at  Less is More  for showcasing my 321 card - it is such a thrill when something I've made gets picked!! But it's down to earth with a bump because this week is the dreaded one layer card challenge and we are asked to use foliage in some way. After my usual struggle I came up with this little card



I simply embossed the foliage in white and then coloured the leaves with a few tone on tone Copic markers. Sorry the photo is not very good - the leaves look better in real life. I'm not entirely happy with it but as I can't think of anything else this will have to do. 

Thanks for looking.

Hugs

PS A couple of people were asking what I used to get the rounded corners on the square apertures on the 321 card. I used a die from Papertrey Ink called the Take Three die.
