Just one Leaf ....

Happy Monday, friends!  I hope you had a great weekend. 
I took a little time out on Saturday and created a card with the help of Audrie's IC544 challenge at Splitcoaststampers.  For my design, I used the technique that Kelly shared a couple of weeks on TLC583 challenge.

I chose one stamp from Luscious Leaves by Red Rubber Designs and stamped in a light gray ink, then masked off the leaf and stamped again repeatedly along the edge of the card stock.

For the next step, I sketched in the leaves with a pencil and shaded with a blending stump.  I added one of the sentiments from the Wherever You Go stamp set by Red Rubber Designs and it was done!  

Thanks for looking and have a great day!

I am also playing along with:
