Simon's Leaves and Scribbles 'Thanks' and Breaking News Alert

Hi all :-) I am here with a card using the Leaves and Scribbles stamp set together with the coordinating dies and Leaf Background stamp that are all from the Simon Says STAMPtember® release.

To make the background I inked some plain white cardstock using Spiced Marmalade, Rusty Hinge and Forest Moss Distress inks. I then spritzed the Leaf Background stamp with water and stamped the paper. I love the effect this technique gives. 

For the leaves I inked the stamp with the same inks and spritzed with water before stamping onto watercolor paper and die cutting. 

For the 'thanks' I die cut 3 times from white card and then inked with white pigment ink before embosssing with sticky stuff and sprinkling with glitter ritz glitter. 

This is the inside.
