Freshly Made Sketches 207

Wednesday, October 7, 2015

I'm a bit late getting my post up for Freshly Made Sketches but better late than never!  Our sketch this week is brought to you by Kim Singdahlsen.


I wanted to do a bit of a fall theme with my card.  Then I saw the color challenge at Sunday Stamps and the inspiration challenge at The Card Concept and incorporated both of those into my design as well.


The leaves on my card didn't turn out exactly as I wanted which means I need to go shopping for some new leaves!  Ha!

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope I get to see you in the gallery this week at Freshly Made Sketches!

Supplies:
Stamps:  Fantastic Foliage (SU); Signature Greetings (Papertrey Ink); Fall Colors (Precious Remembrance)
Paper:  Crumb Cake, Basic Gray, Whisper White (SU); Fog (Simon Says Stamp)
Ink:  Crumb Cake, Basic Gray (SU); Fog (SU)
Accessories:  Enamel dots (Studio Calico)

I like your thinking about shopping for new leaves! I've been on a mission lately to find new leaf stamps that are realistic. They're few and far between - at least ones that I like! Your neutral autumn card is gorgeousl - so crisp and clean and I think your leaves came out beautifully.
