One Layer of Leaves...


Don't you wish that leaves from trees fell in just one thin layer as well? haha. Well, Speedy the Cat's Friends Challenge #73 is asking you to be cas-tastic...and one layered!  Let's see what you've got!  

Masking is a great way to add faux layers. I cut a nestie out for the center "panel."  The positive shape was used to cover the "panel" when I stamped the leaves over the edge.  I've found that a great embellishment helps these simple cards.  There is a button between that organdy and twine...just a bit hard to see in the pix.
