Speedy the Cat Friends Challenge #72 - Punches

Welcome to Speedy the Cat's Friends challenge#72.  We are being challenged to use punches on our cards.  I actually had to use a leaf die because I didn't have anything appropriate in the way of punches for the card I wanted to make.  I stamped the background panel with the leaf from a soon to be released set Autumn Glory.  I painted the leaf image with Pearl-ex paints in various colors and stamped it onto white card stock.  Wow does it shimmer!  I also did a Pearl-ex wash on watercolor paper and cut a leaf with a Cuttlebug leaf die and embossed it with the companion embossing folder.
Now it is your turn to play - create something new using punches and link it directly to InLinkz on Mark's Finest Papers blog for a chance to win a not yet released stamp set.  If you use MFP images you will be entered twice!
Thanks for coming by!

    P.S. sorry about the deleted post on the puppy. I am having major computer issues with a new computer and struggling to get things done. I think they have decided after 8 weeks to send me a new computer because they cannot fix this one!

  8. I love your card. The leaf is perfect, it looks so real. Beautiful card.
