FMS....Thankful Thoughts


Hello Peeps!!

I have a fun fall card to share with you, I made this one using this week's sketch on the Freshly Made Sketch Blog .


Great sketch huh? 
I have been playing around making some fall leaves and trying to convince myself that I DON'T need the new set in the Stampin Up mini called Wonderfall with it's matching die. I haven't convinced myself yet, I imagine it will be on my next order even tho I do have a few leaves sets already.
Anyway, aren't these leaves pretty?
 I made them using the French Foliage set. I stamped this leaf image with Soft Suede ink onto three colors of card stock, I used So Saffron, Riding Hood Red and Pumpkin Pie. I then cut them out and sponged each, the So Saffron was sponged with More Mustard and Tangerine Tango.
The Pumpkin Pie leaf was sponged with Tangerine Tango and Cherry Cobbler ink and the Riding Hood Red leaf was sponged with Cherry Cobbler. They look pretty life-like don't' ya think?


The base of the card is crumb cake and the DSP is from the Orchard Harvest pack. I matted the DSP with More Mustard and Very Vanilla card stock.
I made a twine bow and added it to the leaves. The sentiment is from the retired "Grateful Greetings" stamp set. 

The inside:


Thanks for stopping by today, I did get a chance to play a bit today so I have a couple of other cards to show you this week so stay tuned for those.

HAPPY STAMPING!!!

Vicki
