Grateful For Fall

Hello, everyone!  It has truly turned to autumn weather this weekend.  I have finally turned the furnace on and it has gone into the 30s at night.  The trees are starting to take on yellows and oranges.
 This weekend at SCS,  a wonderful tutorial for the most magical leaf was posted.  This tutorial, by Debbie, is great fun to do and not hard at all.  I encourage you to hop over and check it out.  My sketch for this card is based on the sketch at MOJO Monday this week.
 The colors for this card are for the challenge at Pals Paper Art this week.
What  a stunning combination of colors!  For this card I used-
Paper-Early Espresso, Cajun Craze, More Mustard, Very Vanilla and Brushed Gold
Stamps-Gently Falling, Always Thankful
Ink-Stazon Black, Early Espresso
Other-SU reinkers in Midnight Muse, More Mustard, Glorious Green, Pumpkin Pie, Cameo Coral, Simply Scored Tool, Wood Grain ef, gold 26g wire, 1 1/2in circle punch, Apothecary Framelits, UTEE, gold embossing powder, Memory Box Quinn Flourish

Below is a close-up of the leaf, which looks like a ceramic piece!  This is just a fantastic technique!

Thanks so much for visiting my blog and have a very blessed week!

Back again, with one more great sketch for the day.  This is for Freshly Made Sketches

Here is my take on this sketch-
Early Flakes

For this card, I used Verve's Glad Tidings stamp set and matching snowflake dies.  The papers are Crumb Cake, Whisper White, and the wonderful, new Candlelight dsp.  The flakes are inked in Early Espresso.  I also used pearls, polka dot ef and white craft ink.  I am so sad that the craft ink pad did not serve me well here!  Time for a new pad.  The circle panel and the die cut flakes are popped up on dimensionals.
Thanks for visiting my little part of blog world!  Have a wonderful week!
