Stamp Off Challenge Colorful Seasons Sketch

Hey friends.  Thank you for joining Susan, Buffy and
myself for another Stamp Off Challenge.  This is our
first for November.  Time sure is flying.

This week, we have a wonderful sketch challenge.
Sketch challenges are my favorite, and I prefer "simple"
sketches, so that you have a good base to build on.

I tried to orient this card vertically, but the elements 
worked better on a horizontal orientation.  I wanted to
create a fall card with some glitz, so used a lot of gold components.
The leaf images from Colorful Seasons (p 147) were spritzed and stamped in different colors, on watercolor paper.  Once dry,
I gold embossed the leaf images over top.  I gold embossed
the sentiment from the Flourishing Phrases stamp 
set (p 24) on to black c/s, to create some drama.

These components were layered on to a strip of 
Bundle of Love Specialty DSP on page 189.  Finally, the
card base was run through the Brick Wall Textured
Impressions Embossing Folder.  I colored candy dots
with a gold Sharpee Marker

I hope that you liked our sketch.  Remember to check
out the lovely projects created by Buffy and Susan.
