The Scent of Fall is in the Air!


I love fall! Fall means football (my Cowboys are 3-0!), marching band (my daughter plays the baby bass drum!), pies, spice candles, pumpkins, soup season, beautiful colors, and pretty leaves~
It is my favorite season of the year.

Today I made a fall card using Sketch #63 from Sketches! by Tamara. Click HERE to see all the Design Team cards using this sketch.

My sentiment (Impression Obsession) is stamped in Chocolate Chip ink on Naturals Ivory cardstock and then the edges are sponged with Close to Cocoa and Really Rust. All other layer edges are sponged in Chocolate Chip. I bought these leaves a couple of years ago and hadn't used them on anything. When I saw this week's sketch, I knew I wanted to use them where the flourishes are. I love this patterned paper, and really wish I had about 5 more sheets of it - I can't eve remember where I got it! In this card, in addition to the DP and Naturals Ivory, I used Really Rust, DCWV Textured Neutrals, and Prisma Tawny Pack papers.

Join in and design your own card using this sketch. You can flip it, turn it, make it square, change the sentiment layer to a circle -- just be sure we can see the main idea of the sketch in your card! Play along! Link it back to Tamara's blog and your card may be featured next Friday!

Beginning tomorrow I will be in North Carolina visiting my son, so I don't know how much I will be able to post until I get back next Wednesday! I will not be posting a Monday House Mouse Challenge card, or a Sketches! by Tamara card for next week, as they are both due while I am gone! Have a great weekend!

Hey now, I don't know about those Cowboys...GO STEELERS. :) That is really nice looking, my wife loves to make her own cards too, I'll have to show her this one. As far as the Scent of Fall goes, you have to check out these Pumpkin Souffle scented soy candles from U.S. Candle Company, they are excellent.
