love my distress stains

Happy Friday, my friends. It's 11-11-11 today.  What fun!  I'm not sure that has any significance except that it's a cool number that'll only happen once in my lifetime.

Today I made a card for a challenge at Outlaw Women Scrapbook Emporium yahoo group (group membership required).  The challenge is clean and simple fall.  This card could not have been any easier to make. 

Using distress stains, I swiped three colors (wild honey, rusty hinge, & crushed olive) across an ivory card base.  I used the same colors to color my stamp, spritzed with water and stamped.  After cutting out the leaf, I edged it with chocolate chip ink. 

I added some speckles and the sentiment with chocolate chip ink. 

Then I tied a piece of chocolate grosgrain ribbon around the card and attached the leaf with dimensional tape. 

All stamps are SU.

Thank you for visiting here today.  Have a great weekend.
