Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #258

Happy Wednesday!  I hope you're having a great week so far!  We celebrated Thanksgiving here in Canada this past weekend.  We are still enjoying some delicious turkey!  Tomorrow will be Turkey soup!  I can't wait!!!  Today however is a very special day at our house.  My husband and I are celebrating our 14th anniversary!  It's funny how that happened because I'm pretty sure I'm just 25 which means I must have gotten married awfully young!!!

We have a great new sketch this week at Freshly Made Sketches!  Our hostess this week is our colouring Queen, Rita Wright!  Head over to Rita's blog and see the magic she works with ink and markers!
I knew I needed to make an anniversary card with this sketch.  Our wedding colours were raspberry and gold and I wanted to tie that in.  I originally wanted to put a maple leaf on but the leaf I had was far too big.  I opted for an oak leaf because we refer to my husband as an oak tree and my youngest son as an acorn!  I figure this card truly reflects our family!  As I look at this picture here, I realize that both acorns were stamped on Whisper White instead of Very Vanilla!  Oops!  Hope my husband doesn't notice!!!

Cardstock: Very Vanilla, Cherry Cobbler, Early Espresso, Whisper White, Gold Glimmer
Stamps: Acorny Thank You, Autumn Acorn Stamps (PTI)
Ink: Early Espresso, Crumb Cake
Other: Autumn Accents Bigz Die, Acorn Punch, Acorn Die (PTI), Woodgrain Embossing Folder, Polka Dots Embossing Folder, Dimensionals

Thanks for stopping by today!  I hope you'll head on over to the Freshly Made Sketches blog and check out the beautiful cards the design team has created for you!

Have a fabulous day!
