Copper Layering Leaves Birthday

Hello, and thank you for popping in -

I know it has been a while!

My computer was in a repair shop for about a month, which made posting impossible (and in some cases, commenting on all the lovely blogs I follow, for which I apologize!). There's only a limited amount of stuff I can do on my work computer during the day ;-)

So without further delay, I wanted to post one of the many cards I've made using the very lovely Concord & 9th Layering Leaves die set, which I couldn't wait to get my hands on as soon as it was released.

I picked up the new Copper Foil sheets recently released in the Stampin' Up Holiday Mini catalogue. Can you say "G O R G E O U S" ??? Unfortunately, you'll just have to imagine that rich, coppery colour as my photography skills definitely do NOT do this card justice!

I didn't expect this card to take on such a masculine "feel" to it, but I'm happy with how it turned out.

Sending this over to a couple of challenges that it fits in with -

Muse Challenge #186, where Anita's beautiful card inspired me to use 3 leaf dies and a Birthday theme

and Pinterest Inspired Lawnscaping Challenge (sponsored by Ellen Hutson):

With those gorgeous, coppery orange colours & all those lovely leaf images, it's not hard to see where I got the inspiration for my card :-)

Thanks for your visit - have a crafty day!
