Leaves ATC

 The theme for 9ATC Group is leaves. Found part of an old worksheet I'd used behind different projects and covered with an orange die ink, then punched out some leave shapes.

Found a large sheet of paper I had previously sprayed with a purplish maroon ink and cut into ATC sized pieces. Stamped a large flourish image with gold Stazon Metallic ink and let dry.

Trimmed the stamped paper and glued it onto gold card stock. Adhered three leaves on an 1/2" strip of gold metallic paper, and attached it to the ATC with two small green brads.
