Thank you for Oak Leaves and Acorns

First a reminder to check out my blog candy here. You can enter to win until 10/7.

I made this card for the sketch challenge on Split Coast - here is the sketch Roxie gave us this week:





I used a wonderful fall leaf set from Artful INKables called Autumn's Flowers that I stamped randomly on the panel with Wild Wasabi ink, colored in with Prismacolor markers and then drew over the leaf veins with a Spica gold pen to give it some shimmer.The striped designer paper is from Stampin Up and the ovals designer paper is an Amy Butler by K&Co. I used the Design label punch and 2 oval punches, all from Stampin Up, for the sentiment. Both the sentiment and stamped panel are up on foam dimensionals.What a great sketch this is! This is one that I'm sure to use again.

Remember you can get 10% off your Artful INKables order when you use the code listed in the right hand column of my blog - so be sure to write it down when you hop over to check out the stamps!
