Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #401
Happy Wednesday! I hope you're having a great week so far! We "celebrated" the first day of school yesterday! It was a good day for the boys! They both are happy with their classes and I'm sure they will have good years! The summer flew by and I can't believe we're already into September!
A huge thank you to everyone who participated in last week's 400th Sketch Challenge at Freshly Made Sketches! There were so many beautiful cards!
We have a great new sketch this week! Our hostess is the amazingly creative Cecile Ribon! Cecile's cards are always gorgeous and I'm jealous of her collections of dies!!
I bought a really fun paper pack from Michael's last week when I was at my mom's. I've been creating some Gratitude journals with this paper and I have some scraps that I decided would be perfect for this fall card! As much as I hate that summer is over, I love fall and fall colours!
I love the Layering Leaves dies from Concord & 9th so I used those and the fun fall sentiment, threw on some sequins and called it a day! Actually, to be quite honest, the leaves which are now copper foil were originally orange and green but they didn't look quite right so after a day of staring at the card, I changed them to copper and feel better about the end result!
Cardstock: Kraft, Mango Medley, Whisper White, Basic Black, Copper Foil
Patterned Paper: Pumpkin Spice Paper Pack (Michael's)
Stamps: Give Thanks (Concord & 9th)

Thanks again for stopping by! I hope you'll head over to the Freshly Made Sketches blog and check out the gorgeous cards the Design Team has created! They're just beautiful!
Have an amazing day!
