W2CB #46: When Leaves Turn Into Flowers

Hi, everyone! It's the second Wednesday of the month... which means it's time for a new Words 2 Craft By Challenge.

Our words for this challenge come to us from Albert Camus.

Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower. 

For my card, I couldn't resist the change to play with some yummy Distress Oxides. Oh, and yes, I actually parted with some of that gorgeous SU blackberry bliss paper. 

Strathmore watercolor paper; Stampin' Up! blackberry bliss; stash Bazzill olive green cardstock
Close to My Heart sentiment in SU blackberry bliss, heat embossed with Versamark in Simon Says clear powder
inking: Distress Ink vintage photo; various Distress Oxides, applied with Ranger blending tool
Paper Smooches leaf die, leaves heat embossed in Recollections gold powder
MFT double stitched rectangular STAX dies
SU/Sizzix embossing folder; Balger gold blending filament
adhesives: Scotch ATG; Zots glue dots; foam backing

As always, our W2CB gals put their own individual twists on these challenge words. Stop by to see what the ladies have created... and then stop back by to link up a card/project of your own.

See you in the W2CB Gallery! In the meantime, think I'll share this card over at Cards in Envy.
