99 percent natural!

Hello bloggers,

Hope you are having a good time crafting where ever you are...

Here is another card I made over the last two days... I kept sticking leaves and flowers and all sorts of natural stuff to it till I felt it was complete.

The dried leaves and flowers are from my flower press - the big green leaves that you see are curry leaves that are used as a spice in the south of India.

I have used handmade stock and the creamy paper on the background is handmade as well. Just stuck some natural stones (dyed red) to bring some colour to the earthy appearance.

The kitty stamp is from Inkadinkado - I did distress the paper but it somehow does not show in the picture.

Hope you like it.

I love your hand made embellishments Monica. Those big curry leaves do they have an aroma?

This is such a lovely card, Monica. I love the natural fibers and the mulberry paper is perfect for this, isn't it? It's beautiful and you did a great job putting the elements together so perfectly! Beautiful!

Monica, this is just GORGEOUS!!!! Love everything about it. How beautiful! I actually have a flower press and have used it one time creating a card from the flowers. I hadn't even thought about the leaves! DUH! Thanks for the inspiration! Although I don't know if I could create something as pretty as yours.
I'm SO glad you commented on my last post and that I've found your blog! It's super - and I just became a follower! Also, thanks for that lovely Blog Award! So sweet of you to think of me.
