A "Charm"ing Card

Once a month, one of the CCEE challenges involves making a card around a unique or unusual user name on SCS. This month's is Charmwarm, so we were instructed to use a charm on our project. The catch....it couldn't be store-bought, we had to make it ourselves. I used two small leaves I had that had been punched out of green cardstock. I coated them with pigment ink and embossed them with clear ultra-thick embossing powder. The layout design used for my card was sketch challenge 191 on SCS.

Recipe: Paper- ivory, green (leaves), dp; Stamps- Whimsical Autumn by Carolyn King (Gina K. Designs); Ink- gold and forest green pigment (Color Box); always artichoke, really rust and chocolate chip SU markers; Accessories- clear ultra thick ep, charm pin, SU scallop edge punch, leaf punch (source unknown), gold ribbon (Offray).
