MAKE IT MONDAY #260 - FROM BLACK AND WHITE TO COLOR

I'm not usually one of the firsts to create their MIM cards, but with the holiday, I thought I'm going to get one made first thing this morning, I have a busy week ahead!



I don't have any open leaf stamps! So, I got a little creative with some black leaves from TANL, and there is a little bit of green down the left....

Fun challenge this week.  I'm off to Michigan on Thursday for my nephew's wedding. I realized I haven't been home for a really long time! Can't wait!

Great solution to your open leaf problem, Luanne. I often scratch my head when seeing all of the stamps in front of me, yet not having the perfect one needed at that moment. Your card is really fabulous. Have a great time in Michigan.

Luanne, I had to laugh when I read you don't have any open leaf stamps...I stamped a whole row of leaves, from one of the new sets and then realized, WAIT, that won't work because they are solid! I had to go with leaves from a flower set so I could color it half of them! Your card is quite stunning, I love your soft color palette!!
