So Torn

When I saw CAS-ual Fridays So Torn Challenge I immediately thought of a leaf with fall colours.  I'm really not sure why, it's just one of those things that can't be explained.  So I set about trying to figure out how to use something torn on my card.  Very hard for someone who likes everything to be linear.

I lopped off 0.75" from my card front and attached 3 layers of torn paper to take its place.  My favourite Maple Leaf was stamped with Distress Inks and to frame the leaf I added Versamark to the edges of the square, sprinkled on embossing powder and heat set it.  A quick and easy way to add some colour and texture without using paper.

I'm also entering this card for Simon Says Thinking of You/Sympathy Challenge.  There's still time to play and enter both challenges!

Wishing you an inky day!
