Pomegranate Pink Prayers

Howdy ho!  I've made another card for the Moxie Fab:75 Creative Card Challenge - Make your own background....say that 5x fast....  But f irst, how cool are those vellum leaves?  I made them with PTI Leaf Prints and heat embossed them.  I love how that came out.

I was playing around and created this background on white glossy paper.  I first stamped and embossed the leaf veining with white EP.  I then sprayed the paper with a little water then sprayed pomegranate and vintage pink shimmer sprays.  I let them pool around some of the embossing to give it a little more dimension. 

I think I may have gone a little too monochromatic and added too many embellies with this one.  I think I like how it came out.  Or, at least it's growing on me. 

I get to spend a few hours in my craftin' spot tomorrow instead a a few minutes here and there.  I can't wait!

Beatutiful card! You're inky awesome! Such a pretty color and bkgrd. I never think to use leaves on many cards that aren't fall-themed. Don't know why because they're on the trees from spring through late fall but ... . Thanks for helping me see the 'leafy light!' :)
