Father's Day organic leaves

 Hello, hello!
I have had the laziest Sunday morning in years today.  It was raining cats and dogs, darling hubby was off to Vienna and after he left, I watched season four of Downton Abbey.  Next season please!  I will have to check if available to watch in long sessions...I was late to the Downton series, but absolutely love it!

Onto a card for a few challenges...A second cup for Michele's lovely Muse 117
A card for Ellen's Mix it up using one of the Wild Garden leaf dies from Julie...(I LOVE this set and the leaf really reminds me of the arts and crafts movement) and the handsome banner is Avery Elle from The Man stamp set that I embossed with SU espresso EP.  The leaf was cut six times for each card that I made.  Three in a green foil cs and three from the woodgrain cs that I used for the fronts of the cards.  I lined up the the leaf shape across the standard size card front and to my delight, three = lovely spacing!
Happy Little Stampers is calling for die cuts/punches, so I am offering up over there too!  Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope that you are having a great Sunday!
