Trees and leaves

Good morning and welcome to this week's inspiration  piece for the Make My Monday challenge which is all about
Trees and Leaves.
 The above card uses a Tim Holtz alterations trellis die, Clearly Besotted Leafy accents stamps and corresponding dies, sentiment from Clear Impressions freebie via Get Stamping magazine. Three shades of green distress inks and walnut stain.

For the card below I used French Foliage set of stamps from SU in DI's peeled pain and fired brick. sentiment from HOTP Artful collection. I was inspired by the Less is More Challenge to use opposite colours on the colour wheel, hence red and green. I'm not sure it passes as LIM but I'll enter it for the challenge any way ;-)

Thank you for looking you know I love it when you do, especially if you leave a comment it's so very much appreciated.

Two great cards. I love the red and green leaves with the splatters and the script. Qualifies for me, plenty of white space :)
Thanks for sharing with us.

These are so pretty, especially the second one. I don't believe in gardening any more. I have sown five packs of sunflower seeds and only one seed germinated....I think the mice eat them.

This card simply enchanted me. It is magical. I love the color combination. When work frost, sometimes leaves so discolours. A wonderful impression. The extraordinary card.
