Gorgeous Leaves for AYSI 263

 It's Recipe Challenge week this week. Simply take the five ingredients and see what you can cook up with them.

Gorgeous Leaves is such a wonderfully versatile set. I've used it here for a THANKS card which matches the One Word Sentiment condition. It's popped up dimensionals on one of the Tasteful Labels dies.

For element two, Embossing Folder, I've used the Timber 3D Embossing Folder on the Very Vanilla background panel.

For element three, ribbon or twine, cord from the Simply Elegant Trim pack.

I've gone overboard on element four, punch or die cut, as I've used Tasteful Labels dies for the sentiment, Intricate Leaves dies for the two leaves, and Basic Borders dies for the cut edge of the card base.

For element five, Neutrals, I've stuck to the Neutrals colour family:Early Espresso, Crumb Cake, Sahara Sand and Merry Merlot. I also consider metallics to be neutrals so have used the gold cord trim and some Gilded Leafing Embellishment.

I also took inspiration from the latest challenge at Freshly Made Sketches for this project. 

We'd love to see what you make of these ingredients. You can see what the rest of the team have done and link up your entry by visiting the As You See It Challenge site.
