Embossed Leaves

Hi every one , welcome to my room . Hope that you and yours are well  and  thank you for calling in .
Glorious day in Adelaide so a few jobs outside to do before crafting . Just managed to squeeze some time in my room before starting dinner . Curried chicken and rice . Easy as .
My really quick card today is for Less is More challenge .
I wanted to have a change from white card .

For this card I have used Old Olive and Pear Pizzazz. Handsome Hunter ink for sentiment , Three Leaves, SU. Scallop Circle Punch , 1 3/8" Circle Punch SU.  Embossing folder and cuttlebug. Border Punch, Kasz.
Took a few tries before I managed not to have the folder edge lines on the card  but it can be done !
Hope this fits the challenge . .
Hope you like it .
Catch you later , cheers for now , Shirley-Anne.

You're right it is nice to have a different colour to white in less is more, the shades of green all great together. 4 more xmas cards for your challenge tonight.
