Thankful Leaves for Sunday Stamps

Well happy Sunday morning!  This extremely rare Sunday post is brought to you by my new Design Team position over at Sunday Stamps!  I am thrilled to be working with such a talented group of fellow designers...including one from my very own Tri-City Stampers team!  So, without further ado, here is this week's sketch challenge:




...And here is my project:

Thamk you card featuring the Colour Me Autumn DSP and Autmn Accents Bigz Die.
I decided to substitute the leaves for the tags in the sketch.  I simply love the Fall and all of the warm, rich, earthy tones it brings.  I die cut my leaves, using the Autumn Accents Die, from card stock in colours found in the Colour Me Autumn DSP I used in for the background:  Crushed Curry, Cajun Craze and Mossy Meadow.  Then I embossed each one using a different TIEF:  Woodgrain, Decorative Dots and Zig Zag

The little wooden leaf is one of the little Autumn Wooden Elements.  I love these because you can sponge them to add colour and even stamp on them, as I did here.  I used a little greeting from the now-retired Tiny Tags set.  I added some hemp twine I had left in my stash in place of the ribbon in the sketch.  The background layer is a piece of the Kraft cardstock that I embossed using the Honeycomb TIEF...did I mention there's LOTS of texture on this card??  The whole thing is layered on a Mossy Meadow card base.

On the inside of the card I added a few more die cut and embossed leaves, as well as another little wooden accent, this one the negative of the one on the front.

Thanks for stopping by on a Sunday...you'll see more posts from me on Sundays moving forward (that's if I can remember to post them!), as Sunday Stamps has a new challenge ever other Sunday.  Check us out and play along!
