Desk Top Creations

     One of my favorite ways to challenge myself is to make something using leftovers from my messy desktop. Here's one that used a reverse from a die cut. I remember that I did intentionally cut the leaves in a row thinking that it might look cool on a future card or as a mask.  I also used one of my favorite techniques-inlaid embossing to incorporate the leftover into my card.
This is also a CASE of this pretty card by Pam/Bailmac as the Queen for the Day challenge last week was to CASE a card from a previous Queen whose name starts with "A" or "B". Pam uses a lot of twine accents on her cards, so I added the linen thread and button instead of ribbon and a slide.

Here's a card I made previously using another reverse mask and paint before embossing with the Square Lattice.  I liked the pops of red against the cool blues.  This was made from a sketch from Janette for the sketch challenge  a while back.
