Quixotic Paperie - 'Leave it Out'

Good afternoon one and all...flying past today by the seat of my pants! I have so much to do and I am flapping about not knowing where to start.

A week tomorrow we fly off to the Philippines to see my sis, but between that I have cleaning, packing and visitors coming to a few DT cards to make here and there!

Anyway, welcome to another Wednesday Quixotic Challenge. This week it is Kim's turn to pick the theme and she has chosen 'Leaf it out!' . This week she has asked us to incorporate leaves into your card or project.

ooooooo I had fun with this one. First of all I found some lovely olive green cardstock with some embossed leaves in it. Just perfect for this challenge. I hope the photo picks it up.

I chose the lovely image from Belles and Whistles called Smile, which of course has some little leaves in bud. She as usual is coloured with prismacolor pencils and copics for the skin.

I knew right away I wanted to add more leaves to left of the image so it wouldn't look like she was juts hanging in mid air! So I used paper roses, a Martha Stweart leaf punch , some leaf pins and a spray of pearls to create the little arrangement.

Thanks for popping by today. Don't forget to enter my Mother's Day Give Away. I have 5 fabulous sets of gifts to give away and all you have to do is tell me a memorable Mother's day Gift you have sent or received and you might receive these goodies courtesy of the dotcomgiftshop.

I'll be back tomorrow with a winner for my candy give -away, to thank you all for being soooooooo generous with your crafty parcels for the ladies of Yunik Crafts. I am just off to go put together a package for someone :)
