Toread card

Hello everyone - well where the heck did October go?  Happy Halloween by the way - I have been pumpkin carving this afternoon - they aren't great but they look ok ;o)  
Anyway, I haven't entered any challenges for ages and I saw it was the last day for the Crafter's Companion monthly challenge and thought I would enter a little card I made using their Toread range.
I am usually a stamper but I had the decoupage too for this and I really have to start to try to use up some of my piles of stash LOL.  So here we go;

I used a Kraft card base and stamped a flourish in Walnut stain and heat embossed with clear powder.  I used a Sheena embossing folder for the ivy leaves with core'dinations card and then sanded it back and inked the veins with more walnut stain before cutting them out.  I used some papers from the Toread CD for the matting and layering along with some more kraft card.  I'm not sure how well it shows up but on the lower piece of paper I used a Darice embossing folder inked with Versamark to emboss some tulips.  I added some pearlescent powder and heat embossed - it has a lovely pastel green sheen to the tulips.  I added my little decoupaged Toread nymph along with a bow and another ivy leaf and a sentiment heat embossed with a darker green pearlescent powder.  I then went over the ivy veins with some glossy accents.  I finished by doing the inside of the card to match ;o)  Not much to this card but kinda cute.
