Speedy the Cat's Challenge #73

Welcome Weekend!! This week the Speedy the Cat Challenge Blog challenges us to create " a one layer CAS" card. I used the newly released set "Autumn Glory"...
punched corners of card and then just sponged edges of white cardbase and stamped leaves using Ranger Distress Aged Mahogany, Rusty Hinge and Fired Brick. On smaller piece of white cardstock, I colored yellow, orange, red Gelatos directly onto paper and then lightly misted and swirled with paint brush. Heat dried and then continued to stamp the leaf in same colors BUT added one black leaf with the sentiment. Had a slice of white left from the paper trimming so sponged it and added - dont think that counts as a real layer LOL.....heavy on the sponging for this one!

enjoy your weekend! I've autoposted this one because I have a new granbaby and family is coming in, etc etc so will be no time to post or craft this weekend...

hugs
