That splash of color

One of my favorite challenges is black/white with a splash of color and that is exactly what the Colour Q challenge is for this week. 

My other goal for the card I created to go along with that color challenge was a look that was very simple.  I recently received a set of flower and leaf dies from Essentials by Ellen and so I cut several leaves from the same white watercolor paper as my background piece.  The leaf dies are in two sizes.  To go along with the black/white part of the challenge, I cut one of the leaves from black paper. 
 Before I placed my leaves on my card, I used a Heidi Swapp spray and some Distress Stain to create an extremely simple splash of the turquoise.  My card was finished with a tiny sentiment stamped with black ink and a black and white enamel dot.  
 Here is the Colour Q challenge.
Plus I created my card around the Freshly Made sketch.
