Leaf - thinking of you

I have made this card for this week's challenge over at Catch the Bug - it's a color challenge this week.

I used a leaf from the digi stamp set Mini set - Leaf blocks. It's one of  favorites and I immediately thought of it when seeing the color scheme.
I colored the leaf with three different green Promarkers and a white gel pen.
I roughed up the edges and adhered it to a green panel and a DP from KaiserKraft.
The sentiment is from Penny Black and I tucked a piece of ribbon beneath the panel.  

This card is also for:
Moving along with the Times - #78 Texture
Aud Sentiments Challenge - #210 Anything Goes + A Sentiment
Crafty Gals Corner - #172 Ribbon or Bow

This is fabulous Pia. The colours really pop and I love how the leaf edges over the frame. The addition of the white gel pen works so well in the colouring. And what cool funky paper you used for this. Adds a nice kind of grunge contrast to the pretty leaf x
