Happy Saturday!
It's time for another challenge at Addicted to CAS, our sponsor for this challenge is Happy Little Stampers with a $15 gift certificate.

For my card I started with a top folding white card base, a white panel cut down with a stitched die from the Blueprints 15 from MFT Stamps and a piece of watercolor paper.  I stamped the leaf image from the Lace Leaf Stamp set from Concord & 9th in Versamark ink and then embossed it in white.  I always use the MISTI when stamping on watercolor paper because of the texture, to make sure I get a crisp image. Another tip on the MISTI is I also use the Mini Misti to line up my panel. I just police my card base in the corner and then it allows me to place my front on and it not be crooked, give it a try.
To get the ombre effect on the leaf I sponged the following distress inks from top to bottom, Rusty Hinge, Spiced Marmalade, Wild Honey and Scattered Straw.  
For the shadow, I sponged the inks directly on the stamp and them stamped it on the paper. To finish the card I added the greeting in Memento Tuxedo Black and a strip of design paper on the inside. 

Happy Stamping,
