Happy Hump Day Peeps!

Today I am sharing a card I made with the sketch challenge today on Splitcoaststampers. This is a great sketch and I loved working with it, it is definitely a keeper!

I have been having fun playing with this new set from the Stampin Up Holiday Mini called "Gently Falling", it is two step set. There are the inside of the leaves and then the outlines are a separate stamp. I decided to just use the outline stamp, I stamped with earlly espresso ink onto some very vanilla cardstock, I then sponged in some daffodil delight ink into the middle of the leaves and then some cajun craze ink around the outer edges of the leaves. I then cut them out to add to the card.

The base of the card is Early Espresso card stock, I then used some crumb cake and the DSP id from the Frostwood Lodge paper pack.

The middle is more crumb cake and very vanilla that was embossed with the square lattice EF.
I made the sentiment flag with crumb cake and the sentiment is from the "Always Thankful" stamp set and is stamped with Early Espresso ink. The button is from the retired Deck the Halls button pack. I tried a few things in the corner, first just some gold brads, didn't like that, then tried a couple of antique brads, still not so good, then I remembered the glitter brads and I thought the gold ones looked nice. Added a bit of bling to the earthy card! :)

Well, that is all from me today, thanks for stopping by and
