I thoroughly enjoyed my Saturday in Pittsburgh.  After an early breakfast with my daughter, I headed downtown to find a parking space — not as easy as I had expected.  But, I’m all clued in for next time!  Then, I had some time to wander around and get my bearings.

Pittsburgh

I crossed over from Heinz Field to see what the statue is across the street and was met with this fabulous view!  The statue — Mr. Rogers of Mr. Rogers Neighborhood fame.  It sits in a lovely parklette.

I thoroughly enjoyed all the “doings” before the game.  More on that in another post.  The day was beautiful.  Maybe too beautiful as I came away soo sunburnt — my nose is about the color of Rich Razzleberry.  Pretty in cardstock, not so much for skin.  Note to self — take sunscreen!!

Anyway, I did create something to share for today.  I used Vintage Leaves for my TSOT287 design team card.

I started with a 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ Very Vanilla cardstock base.

Then I added a 2″ x 5-1/2″ piece of Petals and Paisleys Specialty Designer Paper.

It is layered with another piece of the designer paper that measures 1-1/4″ x 4-1/4″.

The layers needed just a little something to bring them to life so, I added a narrow strip of Gold Glimmer Paper.  That did the trick!

I stamped the Oak leaf from Vintage Leaves in Rich Razzleberry onto a piece of Delightful Dijon and then cut it out with the coordinating Leaflets Framelits.  After adding Dimensionals to the Oak leaf, I lined up the stem and central vein in the leaf with the top of the Rich Razzleberry designer paper layer.

Then, the card was finished with three large Basic Pearls.
