If leaf-ing me is easy........

Hello all!
         A day late and a dollar short but I'm here with my posting for the latest colouring challenge from the Outlawz colouring DT and our theme this week is leaves.  Now you go down the obvious route of using an image with leaves or go off-piste with a 'sorry you're leaving' type of card - the choice is yours and you can use any form of colouring medium you choose, just remember you must actually colour in an image!

                                            I used a very cute image from Birdie Brown, coloured in with Copics and used my Silhouette Cameo to cut some leaf shapes from the cardstock.  I then added some paint chip samples behind the cut out leaves and inked the edges of the popped out shapes, adding them along the side.

    I must apologise for the poor photography as I still haven't found my sweet spot in the house for photographing cards!  The gloomy, grey November light doesn't help much either.

               I would like to enter this into the challenges at Fresh Brewed Designs, Digi Stamps for Joy, Southern Girls and A Crafty Mess.

Thanks for popping in!
