CIC59 - Leaves

This week Clearly Inspired Challenge #59 is Leaves, a little or a lot of leaves on your project. Here's the card I made with one of the adorable images designed by Lisa Lara at Clear Dollar Stamps. I used the outline version so I could color the little guy to look like my oldest grandson and to match my paper.

I hope this inspires you to create your own card with leaves and join us at the Clearly Inspired Challenge at Clear Dollar Stamps where you can also check out the cool cards made by the other members of the design team.

I'm sharing this card with the following challenges:
Cute Card Thursday Challenge #233 - Autumn Gold
Fab 'n' Funky Challenge #137 - Colors of Autumn
Inspired By #40 -(photo of a stack of autumn colored blankets)

Card Recipe:
Digital Image - CDS Piles of Fun
Ink - CTMH Autumn Terracotta, Honey
Markers - CTMH Alcohol Honey, Autumn Terracotta, Autumn Terracotta Light, Twilight, Twilight Dark; Copics E35 Chamois, E18 Copper, E00 Skin White, E11 Barely Beige, 0 Blender
Paper - CTMH "Clementine," Colonial White, Chocolate cardstock
Accents - CTMH Chocolate grosgrain ribbon, Sorbet Waxy flax, retired button
Tools - Printer, CTMH Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge (stacked leaves), large corner rounder
