Our Daily Bread Designs {Challenge 32}

Welcome back to another challenge week! It feels great to be back with another challenge for you! This week's challenge is Leaf It--Use leaves on your creation, it can be a part of your patterned paper, your image, your charms, just so it has leaves on it (gold leafing does not count as leaves unless it is a leaf itself).

I created this "leafy" card for my parent's as a thank you for a very precious gift they surprised my husband and I with a few weeks ago. This card doesn't even begin to express the "thanks" I truly wanted to give them but I did poured my heart into this card!! I got my finger stuck under the needle in my sewing machine and bled everywhere. Thank goodness it didn't get on the card! LOL! Let's see, I have been sewing for about 33 years, and I have never done that before. I guess this truly is a special card! :) Anyway, I used the ODBD set "The Lord Has Risen" since it has beautiful leaves on the image. Then I also used part of a sentiment from the ODBD "The Living Bread" set. To color my image, I used Copics and colored pencils. :)
Papers: X-Press It, 7Gypsies Conservatory, Paper Trey Ink cs
