Inspired by Canvas Art

The National Geographic Art Store is just filled with such fabulous and inspiring prints.  Today at Splitcoast, that was our inspiration site.  You can see the print that inspired me below. 
This is also the first chance I have had to make a card for the Birthday Sketch challenge at Moxie Fab; sketch below. (I always send a thanks for my birthday gifts) and I am adding it to the Anything Goes challenge at Simon Says as well.  
The layout of my card was inspired by Heather Telford, her work is wonderful.  I stamped the leaf from Hero Arts then embossed it in white.  I rubbed Distress ink (Peeled Paint) onto my card then mounted the two smaller squares with pop dots.  I placed that panel on my card between 2 scored lines.
Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.  I sure hope you have a great weekend...we get a long one here in Ontario, Canada.

Supplies:  stamps:  Hero Arts; Penny Black/ wh. embossing powder/ Distress ink/ pop dots
