In this card>>>>>>
Linda Blackbird uses a single leaf....proving once again, often "less is more."

Same set, reduced

1 3/4 x 2 1/2" and 3/4" x 1 7/8"



These leaves are shown here because they were created with the Carnation. They work well with the carving....and are also versatile and can be used effectively alone. They are also shown in the "Leaves" section of Flora and Fauna.

If the WHERE IS IT.....question gets too confusing....there is always the "Search Engine" to help. Just type in a name or phrase and it will provide a link to the location.
