Another Leaf Print

 A  couple of weeks ago I found a really nice leaf outside my sons backdoor and made this print with it and distress inks, then it just lay on my desk but noticed there was only one day left on theCAS mix it up challenge so finally made it into a card-hope its CAS enough.

Stamped sentiment was from a Stampin Up set and the pine leaves from a Pink Frog set were stamped around the outside -didn't like it straight on so put on wonky angles.

UPDATE--- Yayyyy Hollie is now negative!

Such a great outdoors-themed card, and the real-life leaf you used makes it so unique. I like the colours you used in your creation, and I think the twisted layers resemble the autumn breeze that makes the leaves fall. Thanks for joining the Alphabet challenge.

Hugs, Veronika
