I wanted you to see that I did try with the leaves... I so wanted to do the black ... look closely and you'll see that the stitched leaves are no longer stitched as my sewing machine [circa 1972] pooped out - really is destined for the land-fill. The partial heat embossing was an attempt at the blurred pool of water I saw in the photo - do you see it? Maybe? Sometimes you just have to move on, and accept that it's laundry day, not card day!!
