Fall Fun with Monica

Over at Stamp in Canada we have been having a one on one monthly challenge. This was made for the September swap. I sent to the person that signed up after I did and it was Margaret that was below me on the list. Of course as usual I had to make a House Mouse card. Now as most of my friends in the stamping group know, I am not  fond of distressing but for some reason it just seemed to be calling to me to rough up the edges. Now I am very pleased with the finished card.
                         September swap card for Margaret                       
The colours I used were Close to Cocoa, a Stamping up  retired colour, dp is from a stack pad I bought at Winners. The stamp is HMKR1045 Turning over a New Leaf from House mouse designs. The sentiment is from Hero Arts.I coloured the image with prismas and oms then coated the leaves with a glaze of white opal liquid pearl mixed with a bit of water. I cut the three three extra leaves  out and popped them up along with the sentiment.
Thanks for stopping by today you are welcome here anytime.
