Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge - Lovely Leaves

It's time for a new Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge!

For my card I embossed the sitching to the base of the card, die cut some Lawn Fawn stitched leaves in white and then blended some Distress Inks on to them. I love the way the stitches pop when you add the ink. I used Fired Brick, Wild Honey and Mustard Seed for the leaves, then Walnut stain on the edges. Finally I covered the leaves entirely with clear Wink of Stella, not much leaves my craft table these days without it. I stamped the sentiment in SU Chocolate Chip and added the tiny heart in Fired brick Distress Ink.
