I made these cards about a month ago, and then our computer got a bad virus, so I couldn't get them posted. I kind of forgot about them after that!
I saw a card similar to this on another blog and then simplified it for a swap I was participating in. I used Crystal Effects on the leaf to get the shiny look. The Designer Series Paper I used for both cards is called Autumn Meadows. I really like all of the colors and patterns in the pack. The stamp set is called Autumn Splendor.
On this leaf, I embossed it, then colored it with a couple of different colors of Watercolor Crayons and an Aquapainter.
