Grateful Vintage Leaves

Sometimes you need to step away and come back to a card you have been trying to create for an hour.  When you return to try to conquer the card again; try this rule - add elements, try pattern paper, use your crimper, or go to your craft supplies and find a punch you haven't used for awhile.

I started out with my leaves, stamped sentiment, Cajun Craze card base and first layer.  I crimped a piece of cardstock and added a 1/8" strip on top.  As you can see, the crimper and Cajun Craze card base didn't work for me.
