ATCAS Challenge #205 & AAA Cards Game #198 & Cupcake Inspirations Challenge #527

I play in a lot of challenges (to build up my card stash for charity and gifts); I find at certain points in the year challenge themes tend to collide.  Although I prefer to make a unique card for every challenge, sometimes I just get confused.  "Leaf" time is one of those times of year.  So I am combining three challenges.  At Addicted to CAS, the keyword is NATURE. At AAA Cards, we are creating CAS cards using up to 1/3 of the card base with the optional twist of Leaves.  Finally at Cupcake Inspirations, we are using shades of green.

I smooshed a watercolor panel with Peeled Paint, Shabby Shutters, Citron Twist and Peacock Feathers.  Once dry, I die cut the leaves using Papertrey Ink's Leaf Cluster and adhered to a green card base.  A small sliver of green washi was added to the card edge for contrast.  The stamped sentiment is from Mama Elephant Everyday Greetings.

This is so lovely. I like how you did with that leaf die cut. Ink smooshing is my favorite because you always get such unique paper. I like your cards simplicity as well. Thank you for joining us at the Cupcake Inspiration Challenge!
