Freshly Made Sketches 359

I'm a wee bit late with my post today...forgot to click "Publish!"  But I'm here with a new card and I am continuing my fall theme again with a card made using the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches and a couple of other challenges -- more on that later.  Our FMS hostess this week is Narelle and her sketch is clean and simple with lots of possibilities.

I chose to use the colors from the Paper Players challenge on my card and although it seems like a lot of challenges are jumping on the fall themed bandwagon I'm adding this to the foliage cue word challenge at Addicted to CAS because this is a pretty CAS card!

I had seen a couple of cards lately featuring leaves that had some lovely "dew" on them so I dug out my old Crystal Effects to add some droplets on my leaves.  Emphasis on "old" here because when the Crystal Effects dried my drops looked a little wrinkled.  Not sure if that stuff goes bad or not!

Well that's it for me!  Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a chance to join us at Freshly Made Sketches this week.  Our lovely design team has made some beauties for you to see!
