Trendy Leaves

Stamplorations is celebrating five years of being in business this month. They have a BIG birthday bash going on all  month long, so you'll want to stop by and check it out. If you create (and link up) a wish list (mine is here), comment, and CASE their DT you'll be entered in the drawing for some great prizes!

I created this card using their Trendy Leaves stamp set as well as their Thinking of You die.
My card is a CASE of the third card Sherry Russ shared in this post. I really liked Sherry's clean-and-simple approach, and since I struggle with that style it was good practice for me to CASE her!

I stamped my leaves in a combo of broken china and mowed lawn distress ink. The I masked them off and stamped the script stamp in the background.  

Supplies and Tools: 
Dies: Thinking of You (Cutplorations)
Inks: Broken China/Mowed Lawn Distress Ink, Tuxedo Black (Memento)
Stamps:Trendy Leaves (Stamplorations), Script Stamp (Repeat Impressions)
