This card is for two of this week's challenges. The F4A451 hosted by Jeanne S. asked for using a stencil on a card. The CC708 hosted by Pam McKay includes the color combination of So Saffron, Garden Green, and Real Red. Dessert for this challenge also includes using a stencil.
To make the card, I first die cut three leaves from white cardstock, colored them, and attached them strategically to PTI yellow cardstock. Then I die cut the same three leaves from the same PTI yellow cardstock and discarded the leaves. I used the Hero Arts "The Woods" stencil and sponged a light gray ink over this panel. I used the same stencil to add Glass Bead Glitter Gel onto the panel. After the gel dried, I used this negative panel to attach over the colored leaves, raising the panel with foam tape. I used the gray ink in hopes it would make the gel show up more, and now I regret it as I don't like it as I thought I would.
There are mistakes on this card; however, this has been a bad week for me and getting the card made took energy from me. Unfortunately, I had a death in my family (i.e. lost a little baby) and was also dealing with the hurricane. Regardless, I got the card made and it fits perfectly for Jeanne's challenge.

Bev, this is a beautiful card. I love those leaves and the wonderful sparkle on your card. The woods stencil is fabulous and I like the gray. You really have gone through a terrible week and I wish I could give you a big hug.

Such a lovely card, Bev! Yes, it has not been a lousy week with our second hurricane this season! So sorry about the baby’s death.....not easy to go to the funeral...
Making the card does take one’s mind off of things for awhile..
