Hmmm...I'm afraid I didn't stick too closely to the sketch this week. I just got this stamp and *had* to play with it. At first I thought it would be perfect for the sketch, but I realized that the words on the leaves would be covered up by the circle element in the sketch. So I ended up putting a big bow in the opposite corner and am hoping the sketch goddesses will forgive me. ;)
The leaves were colored using distress ink and a waterbrush. I then used the inks & brush to spatter on color for the background panel behind the image. I used an ink pad direct to paper to create the layers behind both panels and a yellow bic mark it marker to color the pearl in the center of the bow.
Thanks for a fun sketch Roxie! I'm going to work on it again with another image that will allow me to stay closer to the sketch.

Oh Katie, even tho your card is of the "fall" type, it has such a springy feel to it. Love your bright colors and sentiment leaves. What a make you smile kind of card! Love it! TFS :0) P.S. I don't think the challenge police will even notice. It's too dang cute!

Love the simplicity of this card. Great fall colors and well put together.
