Good Morning Everyone,

I hope you've had a good weekend, despite the inclement weather here in the U.K. at the moment.

When I saw the sketch challenge at Less is More I thought it was a good opportunity to use up some of the heat embossing that I had to discard when making this card.  Needless to say this is a good part of the discarded piece.

I followed the sketch at Less is More and used gold pearlised card for the mats.  The sentiment, from LOTV, is stamped in gold metallic and I've added a touch of red to match the leaves and berries.  They have both been added to ivory cardstock cut with a stitched rectangle.

I will also add this to the CAS Christmas challenge as it still follows the theme.

CAS Christmas - Foliage and berries

I hope you have a good week.  The sun is shining here at the moment, but rain threatens later.
