H2H Color Challenge!

So I know that my blog has been pretty silent lately.  I have been slacking hardcore.  That is not to say that I haven't been crafting though.  On the contrary, I have gotten quite a lot done recently.

I wanted to get this posted though for the Heart2Heart Challenge this week.  This week was a color challenge featuring CTMH colors Honey, Autumn Terracotta, and New England Ivy. 

I jumped on this pretty quickly since I had a pretty good idea what I wanted to do.  So here is the card I made!

I used the stamp set, Flourished Blessings to stamp out the leaves and the sentiment.  I then used Autumn Terracotta and New England Ivy cardstock to mat everything with.  The bitty brads are from Autumn Harvest collection.  I felt the leaves need a little shimmer to them so I lightly misted them with some shimmer mist I mixed up for the occasion.  I created the shimmer mist using Create-a-Shade pearl paint, chocolate reinker and rubbing alcohol.    I hope you like it!

My friend Holly was over at the time and she joined in on the fun.  Here is her creation!
We stamped way too many leaves and have a ton left over!
