happy monday! hope your weeks is off to a smashing good start. 
this week over at  BBTB2 the lovely beth has chosen our challenge  to use the leaf cut from lifes a beach . i dont own that cartridge so instead i used leaves from stretch your imagination. so no worries if you do not own the cartrdidge either  play along using any other leaf from any cartridge you do have. 
for my card i adhered a k@co metal frame around one of the leaves. i added robins nest dew drops a bit of twine and colorbox fluid chalk. thats it. sooo easy but i think overall a pretty nice looking card :) i did try to keep it a bit masculine looking so it could be given to a special unique guy..what do ya think? 
be sure to pop on over to bbtb2 and see what the rest of the awesome design team has created for us all.. i got a sneak peak and wow! thanks so much for stopping by :) have a great day! XXXshelly

Well, this makes me feel a whole lot better about using the wrong leaf! AND I have LAB! LOL! Great masculine card, Shelly! LOVE that metal frame... the scrolls are a perfect match for that leaf. I'm also now reminded that I've got tons of those skittles that I really should start using!
