Viva la Verve Autumn Mosaic

Hello! I hope you are having a great weekend! I am back with my Viva la Verve card using the week 1 November sketch (details here).

I created the background paper by stamping one of the leaves from Verve's Autumn Splendor randomly on a sheet of cardstock. It's such a fun set full of many leaf options - you can color them, paper piece or even stamp solid leaves. I opted to color mine in various fall colors. When it came time to adding the panel on top of my leaves, I didn't want to cover it all up, so I found myself using a piece of vellum again as I did on my card yesterday. The quote is from the same set. I added some scored lines and a few topaz rhinestones near the corner.

Here's a look at Amber's sketch and the inspiration photo I used:

Thanks so much for stopping by!
