Lighthearted Leaves with Colored Perfect Accents

I thought of my sister today as I was pulling things out with which to create.  If you’ve been around her family you’re sure to have heard her say to one or another of the kids, “You’re my favorite.”  It’s a loving joke as they are all her favorite.  That’s how I felt as I pulled out Lighthearted Leaves again today – “you’re my favorite.”  At least right now.

As I played around yesterday creating with Lighthearted Leaves, I had a couple of partial ideas that didn’t work.  Today’s card is a result of one of those ideas that didn’t fit with yesterday’s creation.

This clean and simple card started with the Very Vanilla panel on top.  First there’s a Mint Macaron watercolor treatment followed by the leaf image, in Basic Black, from Lighthearted Leaves.

Under this panel is a fine strip of Typeset Specialty designer paper and a Gold Metallic Thread bow.

These overlay a Basic Black layer with a bit of Everyday Chic washi in the lower right hand corner.

After adding everything to a Very Vanilla card base, I added three Perfect Accents that I had tinted with Mint Macaron.
