Mark's Finest Papers

For today's card, I found a little inspiration in a picture of some new bathroom rugs a crafty friend of mine, Michelle, posted on Facebook.  I immediately saw the sketch potential and then went along with the yummy colors.  I didn't want to alter the sketch a bit, so I left off a sentiment.  I used the three different sized leaves in three different inks to decorate the six panels.  A few brads finishes off the simple note card.

Here is Latte posing on the new bathroom rug!
Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to see what Tangii has posted for you today!
