Autumn - Seize the Sketch #8

Good morning to all of you amazing Seize the Sketch fans!  We have a goodie for you today!

This sketch is based on a card that I made this past summer called "Birthday Wishes!"   I hope you love it as much as I do and that you have a chance to play along with us for Seize the Sketch #8!

Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps is sponsoring our STS #8
I got to use the beautiful digital images, Autumn Collage and Autumn Leaves...gorgeous together!

I'm linking up to the Simon Says Stamp and Show challenge:  Got Ink?, too!

Instead of the usual printing on white and coloring of the digital images, I printed them onto some Stampin' Up! designer paper that I had stashed away...love the teal chevrons and brown houndstooth prints!  After printing the images and sentiments out, I fussy cut the leaves and cut the sentiment tag and background panel to fit on the card front!  There is a bit of distress ink around the background panel, some stitching, and embellishments of twine and sequins!  

Thanks so much for stopping by the stage!  Hope to see you over at Seize the Sketch!

Wow! This card is so stunning! The thing that impresses me the most is how you captured a sense of movement. It just seems like the leaves are swirling and made me feel so...Autumny (even though I know that's not a word). I really liked how you left the twine loopy and long and didn't snip off the thread, either. It has a great "windblown" look and it's one of the most unique and stunning Fall cards I've ever seen. I'm so glad you shared this with us here at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge blog!
