Aug SID- Leafy hello

Hello friends and welcome to August and my card for Stick It Down card sketch. We are changing things a bit if you haven't heard you can read the details on the Stick It Down blog here.  We are not going away just moving a bit. Here is our card sketch this month.

For my card I started with using some Distress Oxides to color a scrap of white cardstock. Then I die cut my leaves and glued them to a layer of white cardstock, before cutting it down a little smaller. I decided I liked the idea of a thin colored layer of cardstock behind the leaf panel, so I used the same ink to match the layer with my leaves. I then added it to a cardbase. I die cut my sentiment out of a scrap of pattern paper left on my "mesk" using an old favorite hello die. Since my background and my hello were both a little busy with colors I layered my hello on some vellum and adhered it to the card. 

Now to send this tropical, summery and very Gold Girls like card to someone... "Shady Pines, Ma!"

Hope to see you over on the new Facebook group with your card based on the card sketch or one of our scrapbook layouts! If you aren't a member yet please see the post here for the link. We all love to see how you use the sketches. Thanks so much for stopping by and have a wonderful day!
