First I stamped the two smallest snails to make my own background paper.
I wanted to have lots of little friends for the big guy in the front, so the
theme would match the sentiment. I think it works!
I ran the leaf through a sizzix embossing folder. Any design will work, this adds great
texture and makes the leaves look more real, I also crumpled the ends a bit.
The coloring on the snail is prisma pencils, blended with odorless turpentine, using paper
blending stumps.
I love to finish the edges of the card with either sponging, or a black outline.
This draws your eye to the main focal area of your card.

What a wonderful sentiment, and I love your idea to emboss the leaves. You already know how much I admire your coloring skills, but I tell you, again: your coloring is terrific! Beautiful card, Judy!
