MC Oct/15 - Tattered Leaves - ECD With Sympathy - Some People are a couple techniques on the card front that I used to do eons ago and resurrected... The stamping on black and coloring and the multi coloring using embossing powders on the oak leaves. Even though this is a sympathy card I really love the way it turned out. Now I just have to keep my fingers crossed I won't need it any time soon...

I'm using an Elizabeth Craft Designs die "With Sympathy" also available on Quietfire Design HERE.

Also using Design By Ryn "Hibiscus" leaves on the inside colored with Pan Pastels.

And of course using a quote stamp by Quietfire Design.

Wow! Love the leaf panel on the front and the multi-colored embossed oak leaves. Then the leaves inside are so pretty, too. Nice card, Yogi!

Yogi, I saw this and said "oh wow", out loud! Just love the way you coloured the leaves with the Pan Pastels and placed them within the composition. A beautiful sentiment that goes so well with Fall - a time of change and letting go. Beautiful beautiful card! This one touched me a lot.

The multicolored leaves turned out looking gorgeous and your coloring on the black panel is a beautiful detail as well. A lovely and very appropriate design for a sympathy card.
