Another good idea gone wrong!!!
I found one my leaf stamps and decided to create a background  and stamped it with Hero Arts Gold embossing powder and cut the panel out with Spellbinders Romantic Rectangles - good so far. I backed the whole and used the image with Neenah Kraft cardstock. I stamped some gold extra leaves and cut them out with Memory Box Tender Leaves to add them as a carpet for 'Contented Mudpie' to sit on and the 'Jumping for Joy' little mouse to bounce on. I add a ribbon and a few beads and charm.
This is where everthing went wrong - photographing it  - the ribbon is  a Kraft colour - it looks orangy and the charm look silver whilst it is goldish!!  I photo'd it several time but eventually surrendered!!
Materials and Tools:   
Cardstock:   Simon Says Stamp Dark Chocolage, Neenah Kraft cardstock

Heather, love your gold leaves and bow to go with these rascals playing in the leaves. Beautiful background die cut!
Awesome color work.

Too bad you couldn't get the photo you wanted, but this is gorgeous!
