A Plant for You!

Hi everybody!
Did you get to Gina K Designs release party over at SCS forum. All the new wonderful sets! I must have them all!! The previews were just gorgeous! I was so excited to be able to preview Melanie Muenchinger's Gorgeous new set "A Year of Leaves".

So about my card , I wanted to make a philodendron plant and this is what I came up with. I colored the leaves with copic's , a light yellow is what I used here (Y11) then I went over it with a med. green leaving spots of yellow, then cut them out. To make the vase I used a oval nestablities and cut the top and the bottom off. The paper for it, is some glossy black card stock I have had for some time. The rest of the paper is all from Gina K Designs including her newest Pumpkin Spice.
I added some self adhesive brads and ribbon.

Melanie Muenchinger's newest set "A Year of Leaves" is now available for purchase! (You can see the full set under "What's New!" at Gina K Designs.) This is a year round set including an assortment of leaves and nature images with coordinating quotes and greetings to suit any occasion.

You can see more samples today using "A Year of Leaves" on Melanie's blog, and from the lovely and talented Sharon Johnson, Laurie Schmidlin,
This set has a lot versatility and I can see many ways to use it. This set diffidently is a must have!!

Thank you so much for sharing your time!
