This week at Less is More it is a One Layer Card challenge, with the theme of Foliage. That is a lovely choice, no doubt influenced by the coming Autumn in the northern hemisphere, but a great choice for all seasons just the same. However, my card does reflect autumn, a beautiful time of year in our neck of the woods (Victoria, Australia) with its more consistent weather, clear skies and yes, we do have autumn foliage here.
I was influenced in my choice for this card by the beautiful inspiration from the DTs, and used a homemade stencil for my leaves, stamped with Distress Ink - shabby shutters, scattered straw and spiced marmalade. The stencil is the negative from a Memory Box die, and the sentiment is from Stampin' Up! Wetlands stamp set - an absolute favourite, though this is the first time I have used this sentiment. Poor photography in the late afternoon has cast some shadow on my card, which looks more wobbly than it does in real life - :( I like the simplicity of this card, and the colours - hope you do too!
