Autumn Birthday Card

It's been awhile since I posted.  I've been busy digital scrapbooking for my grandkids and dabbling in mixed media projects and art journaling.  Mixed media has carried over into my cardmaking.  This is a birthday card for my daughter.

The outside base is a Gelli plate print using acrylic paint. I then highlighted the raised leaves from the embossing folder.  The main image glued on top is a digital image from Vera Lane Studio which I colored with Copic markers. The inside base is made with Ken Oliver color burst powders.  I made a pocket and added some die cut and embossed leaves (Tim Holtz) from another Gelli plate print. Stamping both outside and inside is from STAMPlorations.
