Stripes and Leaves

Hi!  Today's card uses the colors from Color Throwdown, the sketch from MFT and the die-cut theme at The Male Room.

I die-cut a piece of Slate cardstock using a Basic Scallop Edges die and then cut out the centre using a pierced square frame.  I used the same die to cut into a piece of gray diagonally striped patterned paper and a piece of vellum.  The outer frame of the scalloped piece was adhered to a white card base and then I used the square frame to position both the patterned paper and vellum in the centre.

The sentiment was white embossed on the Slate panel.  After die-cutting some leaves in Green Apple and Slate, I positioned them inside the frame and popped up the frame with foam tape.  I finished the card with some Nuvo drops.

Thanks for visiting.

Love your take on the sketch and color combo! Your leaves have so much character and I love how they pop against the diagonal nailed it, Karren...this is a fabulous card!

This is fabulous. I love gray + {fill in any color here}, especially when it's a bright color like the apple green. Please convince me that I don't need Nuvo drops...Are they like Stickles?
