CAS - Crinkle



Today's card is my entry to this weeks CAS challenge on SCS. The challenge was to be inspired by the word CRINKLE  which I've interpreted with the crinkled brown card and the skeleton leaves. 

I've used a stamped sentiment from GKD stamped in SU almost cocoa, stamped onto this odd sheet of cream card I picked up in a stationary store.......love the natural look of this card so added the string and a very natural button to complete.  

Now I look at this card I wish the top leaf was flipped round to make a point to the sentiment.  So saying, I put the leaves through the Xyron tape 'thingie' which was a bit of a fiddle .... they were sticking to my fingers.  It was definitely a case of one chance to get them in the right place!

See you soon...........

Very earthy tones . even down to the button and string , beautiful.
Love the sentiment too.
I have used vellum tape to adhere these leaves . I cut two or three tiny pieces place them on the cardstock where I want leaves to be , then ,after taking top off leaving sticky behind , using tweezers I hold the leaf over it until happy with position , then drop onto tape . Yes and once there ,its there to stay error or no.
