Gather With A Grateful Heart

Hello, and thank you for visiting! I have a post today for MIM's challenge
featuring Laurie Schmidlin and Faux Gilded Leaves.

My DH and I are visiting our daughter, and I brought some supplies to play with 
while away. Fortunately Leaf Prints was one of the sets I brought along.
Laurie mixed her embossing powders to create a gilded look on her leaves. So 
much fun, I can't wait to do this again!

Forest Floor: August had this cool shaped banner, and I loved the sentiment,
and the darling acorns, so they got some gilding too.

Text and Texture: Leaves and Pierced Rectangle Frames.
The powders I used are from a set I've had, of course with no names on them. 
The iridescent aqua looks so good with the copper, I love using them together.
Then there's the gold and a touch of silver, just pure richness!

Laurie, thank you! Your card and tutorial were fabulous!

Have fun, and play along on the PTI blog.
