LIM - OLC Foliage

Hi all!
I survived my first week teaching woop woop! And only one crier so far lol!
Hard work starts next week though as we begin the assessments O-O uh oh!

Anywhoo now I have the weekends off I can check out the LIM challenge a bit quicker and found a bit of time to join in.
Its One Layer Card week with the theme of

I'm so thankful for this theme as it finally gave me a kick to try out an idea Ive had for ages for some Christmas cards!!!!

I think Ive seen a similar layout somewhere (forgive me for not remembering) but it used a birthday sentiment and ribbon and other bits but I wanted to keep it as simple as possible as I will be making quite a few of these if I decide I like it!
 I was colouring the leaves a few weeks ago and had the idea to colour them two tone and leave the tips white as if they were covered in snow.

I sprinkled glitter on the tips of the leaves. Not sure if I like it and I didn't take a photo to compare before glitter and after so will need to make another one to decide.
Anyway its a start I suppose!

Right I'm going to try and enjoy some sun and have a bit sit in the yard!
Hope you're all well!
And thanks for all the lovely comments left on recent posts!
