Leaves

Another Friday, another task over at the Alphabet challenge blog. We have reached the letter "L", and fitting for the upcoming fall season we'd like to see "Leaves" on your projects. 
I've created a simple card reusing the cover of a Nina Štajner scrapbook paper set, since it would be a shame to throw it away. Instead, I decided to cut out a piece of paper that features branches and falling leaves. 
With a simple and serene motif like this, I created a simpathy card. I placed the paper piece onto a kraft card base, complementing it with a simple sentiment of condolence which I enhanced with a strip of dark brown paper. I like to believe that despite of the warm colours being used, the card is still acceptable for a sad occasion. But then again, I might be a weirdo :)
Other than that, I decided to leave the illustration as it is. I even restrained myself from adding tiny pearls, because I think those branches don't need any additional bling.

  7. What a amazing card! It´s not easy to make a card that gives comfort to persons in black. But I think your card will. It really is a beuatiful CAS card and very empathic.
    Thanks a lot for sharing your card with the EAC challenge.

  15. Včasih je res majn več in tako je v tem primeru. Tudi meni se zdi voščilnica primerna za bolj žalostne trenutke,saj s padajočimi listi ponazoriš slovo. Hvala za tvoj obisk v Veseli hiški. Pozdrav Janja DT
