Misty Morning

I made this card with two Split Coast challenges in mind. The Ways to Use It challenge was to use just one word on your card, and the Limited Supplies challenge was to have a leaf be the focal point and include pink somewhere on your card.

The leaf is colored with Koh-i-noor pencils and the background is sponged. The foliage was stamped with Apricot Appeal and Creamy Caramel.

All the images are from Botanical Dreams(Gina K Designs) by Asela Hopkins. The card layers are Apricot Appeal, Creamy Caramel and Groovy Guava. Ink colors are So Saffron, Summer Sun, Apricot Appeal, Pretty in Pink, Creamy Caramel and Chocolate Chip.

Have a great day!
