Grateful for Pinterst

Hi am back again with another Pinterest inspired card, this time based on this original pin here.  As for the layout of my card I have chosen to follow Moxie Fab's card design ideas to have a focal point, the sentiment is my focal point and the leaves have been stamped to radiate out from it.  I am entering this in their Focal Point Challenge, details of which can be found here.

Materials used:- 
Penny Black 'Olive Grove' 04-003 and 'Storm' 01-001 Mix and Match Card Stock, 'Foliage Fancy' 30-138, 'Inspiring' 40-113Spellbinders Grand Labels Twenty Three and Fancy Tags Two, Clear Embossing Powder, Glossy Accents, Inks; Versamagic Aloe Vera, Hint of Pesto, Persimmon, Red Brick, Colorbox Q  Moss Green, Olive, Chestnut and Brilliance Cocoa Bean. Faber Castell Design Memory Craft Stampers Big Brush Pen May Green.

The leaves were stamped onto white speckled card and the outer leaves covered with Glossy Accents. The sentiment was stamped in coffee bean and embossed with white powder and mounted onto the fancy tag, dimensional foam pads were used to place on the main image. This was then mounted onto the Olive green card blank.

Thanks for visiting today, I love to hear your comments and thoughts, so please feel free to leave any questions or comments below.

Hugs Cathy

The layering of your leaves is so effective & I love the way you've used them to frame the sentiment. I'm just beginning to get the hang of Pinterest. This is a super example of how to use an inspirational image to make a card.
