Stamping 411 Sketch Challenge

Time for another sketch challenge  from Stamping 411!  This will be brief because I’m scheduling the post early so I can go on vacation!

I decided to pull out one of my favorite sets from last year, Season of Friendship.  I used the Rock n Roll technique on the leaves…stamping in Creamy Caramel first and then the edges in Really Rust and More Mustard.  I like how varigated it makes the leaves…just like real fall ones!  I also placed the little brown bird up in the right hand corner as an embellishment.  I stamped some extra leaves on Very Vanilla, then punched them with the 3/4 circle punch…and layered them on 1" Really Rust punched circles.  The base card is Really Rust and the tree layer is layered on Chocolate Chip! 

Hope you have a greatt weekend.  Make sure you check out the rest of the Stamping 411 operators’ cards this week.  And, play along!  Add your creation to Mister Linky on the Stamping 411 blog.

So pretty! The leaves are finally changing here. It’s not going to be a good year for foliage. The summer weather was too freaky.

Enjoy your trip!!!!
