In the sketch there are a trio of implied flowers-
I switched it up and went with monstrous leaves.
Paper seemed too flat...I love dimension;
so I pondered what would happen if I embossed on fun foam?
I took pictures in case I had a catastrophe :)
Whewww...no fire engines necessary!
I dusted off old Stampin' pads and a layered leaf set
that would be fabulous for my vision of falling leaves!

time for the element of the challenge: EMBOSSING... I thought I'd try them all...the product on right did not fair too well,
but made a few dimensional bumps on 1 leaf.
I wish I had more...it's barely fall and I'm already dressing for winter!
the fun foam started to crumple a bit...leaves are NOT flat...
