Greeting card with technique

So in my last post I showed you the Acrylic Block Blocking technique for a background.   We did this in this month's technique club.  Then here is the card we made using that same technique.  The leaf with the ribbon on is cut out and popped up to give some dimension to this card - although I think this technique already gives the card a great dimensional feel.
And see that little orange gem on the leaf???  In case you didn't know it, you can color SU gems and pearls to match any color you'd like with sharpies.  TIPS:  color the gems or pearls while they are still on the base sheet they come on from SU.  Wait several minutes to make sure ink is completely dry before transferring to your card.  How cute is that!!  Like a little orange dew drop for fall.
Hope you liked my card and technique.  Stop back soon to see the other great project we made.  Here's a hint - it's an OWL!!  ~Maureen
