Fall Thanks...

I love the changing colors of Fall, as well as the falling temps!  I only get a few weeks of Fall in Wyoming, as winter quickly approaches!  Fall also gives me the excuse to add burlap to everything!  :)  I created  my card with the new Hawthorn Scrapbook stamp set.  It was  love at first sight for those leaves!  Here is a look at the complete set-

You can purchase the stamp set alone or with dies.  I knew I would be getting a lot of use out of the leaf dies as well as the titles for scrapbooks, so I went with the complete bundle.  You can even get this set for 50% off with a qualifying party order!  Feel free to contact me with any questions! You can view all of the Hawthorn related items here.

My card is based on the sketch challenge this week at My Favorite Things.  My card has a mix of dies by Close To My Heart and MFT.  Here is a look at the original sketch design-

Design Tip: I inked up my leaf in Saffron ink and rolled the edges in Goldrush ink.  The colors seem to blend together in the photo, but there are subtle differences to the tones in person.  I am sure to be back with more vivid mixes on the leaves!
