Pretty Clever Camo

I've finally had a chance to play with Scraptastic's November "Home" kit, and wow...I've found another favorite paper...the golden leaf print you see below. It is simply gorgeous, so after cutting a strip for this page, I portioned out two more pieces for upcoming layouts. 

Cardstock challenged, I much prefer using subtle patterned paper for my backgrounds. However, by treating this creamy solid cardstock to gold and yellow mists, and then stamping a random crosshatch design (stamp from the "We Are Family" kit), I was able to make it a little more interesting.


Feathers and leaves are tucked behind an exclusive flair badge in a wonderful chestnut color:


I really love the houndstooth design printed on this Maya Road wooden heart. The little wood veneer bird (from my stash) was inked in a coffee brown.


Giraffes are such cool animals, and you have to agree, they camouflage themselves well in the dense brush of ...Walt Disney World! ;)

Beautiful layout! Just the right touch of embellishments and the misting a stamping make the cardstock pop.
