Raindrops and Leaves

Here's a card I made today based on the Pinterest Inspiration photo over at Splitcoaststampers for the CAS challenge.

I colored the leaves with copics and then popped them up on layers.  
One way to give your cut out images more definition is to go around the cut edges with the edge (not the tip) of a marker - normally I use black but for these leaves I used the darkest shade of the corresponding color.  It's a simple way to take away the white edges of the card stock that sometimes show after cutting out an image.
Because the inspiration photo had a pile of interesting colored leaves with droplets of water on them, I added dewdrops.
This quote from Our Daily Bread Designs Quote Collection 1, is one of my favorites - Abraham Lincoln is one of my heroes!  I believe he based this saying on a verse from the book of Romans which says that God works everything together for the good of those who love Him - in some circumstances that's hard to believe, but I do hang onto it!
Supplies include:
Stamping Up Fantastic Foilage
ODBD Quote Collection 1
Copics 
Dewdrops

Simply beautiful! I was wondering how did she do that? I'm referring to your waterdrops on the leaves i have to look closely to my computer screen(it's not that there's something wrong with my eyes) to have a good look at the water drops look like on your card. You are so clever your works are interesting. Thank you for sharing!
