Thinking of You Paper Players PP459

Sept. 15, 2019

It's Sunday and time for a new challenge at The Paper Players!

The marvelous Anne Marie is our hostess and she has a fantastic CAS challenge for all of us! 


Marvelous Metallics….incorporate any metallic (silver/gold/copper/rose gold/even 
colored foil) element on your project.

               By Clean and Simple, we mean cards that meet the following criteria:
Minimal layers and embellishments
Plenty of open space, aka "white" space
Simple and uncluttered

My card is created on a white card base.  I added a gold foil and a white layer that I cut  with stitched rectangle dies.  The leaf is from Neat and Tangled.  I used the Oak Leaf Die to cut the outline in gold foil. 
I created background using distress oxide ink on a piece of water color paper.  I then cut the other leaf die in this set leaving all the little pieces in tact to add to the gold center.  I love the way it turned out.  I added a sentiment in black to complete my card.
