Lighthearted Leaves for CYCI

My card today is for the CYCI Sketch Challenge.  I had fun with this sketch and I hope you like my card.  Here it is:

And here is the CYCI banner


Using an Aquabrush, I laid down a watercolor wash in Daffodil Delight.  The stamped leaves are from the Lighthearted Leaves stamp set.  I chose the leaves because they were similar in design and but differed in size.  They match the hexagon shapes in the sketch.  I stamped them in Cucumber Crush and embossed them with clear embossing powder.  

The sentiment is from the Me=Grateful stamp set.  I stamped it in Early Espresso and embossed it with clear embossing powder as well.

For the strip in the sketch, I used jute that I wrapped around the card several times and then knotted.  My final touch was Cucumber Crush Blossom Accent.  I then mounted my piece on a Cucumber Crush base with Dimensionals.

Ta-Dah!  All finished!  Tell me what you think in the comments below!

Happy stamping!
