Hi peeps - thanks for popping by! Is it Summer, Autumn, or Winter weather in your part of the world today? It's definitely Autumn weather in this part of West Yorkshire!
It's great to be joining the Limettes again at the  LESS IS MORE CHALLENGE
This week, it's ONE LAYER WEEK, and Mandi and Chrissie would like to see - FOLIAGE.

The little leaf stamp (22mm) is from an Artemio set. One of those things you buy "because 
you like it", but you get it home and it goes into the "I will never be able to make anything with this" drawer.
So thanks to Chrissie and Mandi for giving me a reason !!

 Black Archival Ink.
Artemio stamp (10020057)
The leaves on the bottom circle are glittered, the other three are painted with
Derwent Watercolour pencils, hopefully giving a representation of the Four Seasons.
Stampin' Up Curly Cute sentiment.
The lines were drawn with a Pilot extra-fine pen.
X-cut corner rounder punch.

Hugs ~
