365 Cards - #61

Hi Everyone.  The challenge over at 365 Cards was to include a leaf somewhere on your card.  In all the stamp sets I ordered the other day from Stampin' Up! I chose a level two hostess gift  which was Autumn Flair which happened to have leaves in it, it's a two step stamp set.  The lace on my card was tea dyed by myself and I was so happy with the result.  I dyed several metres of it so I would have enough for a while lol.  The green background layer of card was hand coloured by me to create a marbled effect and edged in bronze ink.  The brad in the middle of the flower is a button that I purchased yesterday down at the fabric store in town.  So without further ado here is my entry for today. . . 


That's it for now until tomorrow but in the meantime. . .
Walk about your day with beauty.
