Autumn Groves #1

The weekend is just about over.  *pout*


Had a great time at a crop with my girlfriends yesterday. Made 6 cards for various challenges so I’ll be sharing lots of posts tonight and tomorrow so I can get them all entered.  I hope to share some pictures from our annual trip to Kent Falls too.  We got to see just a little bit of color this year.


Here is my first card – it’s for the Cas(e) this Sketch challenge blog. They just started this week, check them out!



I started by embossing a piece of cardstock using a Cuttlebug folder and then I stamped out the leaves and pumpkins from the Paper Smooches Autumn Groves set.  I colored them with my copics and then fussy cut them.  I popped up the pumpkin for some dimension. Then I decided to add the crow to the pumpkin for a little more scenery.



Thanks for looking!

    Love the crisp clean look with the beautiful addition of texture from the embossing! So glad you played along with us in our first challenge over at CAS(E) this Sketch!

  • The subway art embossing is really cool but still leaves such a clean background for the adorable fall goodness to shine. I love your coloring. Thanks so much for joining us at CAS(E) this Sketch!

  • I love the embossing and the leaves! Thanks for playing along with CAS(E) this sketch!
