Thankful Thoughts of You Greeting Card Pack

Today I have a set of four cards to share with you.  The CAS136 Challenge at SCS was to make clean and simple cards with leaves.  I was trying a version of my watercolor background tutorial without the last steps of using the embossing folder.  I did quite a few "takes" during my play date with Norma earlier this week, and decided to make a whole set of cards.

I used a few different color combinations.  The colors in the various cards are:  Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive, and Real Red.

 I used the same two stamp sets on each card:  Lovely as a Tree, and Grateful Greetings.
 The cards that I used Old Olive on I used a base of Pumpkin Pie.
 On the cards that I used Real Red ink, I used a base of Real Red as well.
 I chose to round the corners of a couple, and paper pierce the others.
One last look at the set.  Thanks for stopping by!
