Sweet Sunday.....Hello Fall

Happy Sunday Peeps!!

Time for a new Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge
Here is our fab sketch this week:

Fall is in the air, it has been beautiful here in Southwest Missouri this past week and the trees are just starting to put on their Fall show! I can not deny that Fall is my absolute favorite time of the year.
So when I was thinking about this sketch I first (of course) thought about flowers, you all know that is my fave, but with fall coming around I wanted to do some pretty leaves.
I asked a friend to borrow this great set, For All Things, to make my card.
Somehow I have gotten to a point that I don't have a pretty fall leaf set. So my friend was happy to lend me hers. 

I stamped my leaves using Crushed Curry, Cajun Craze and Elegant Eggplant onto some Naturals Very Vanilla card stock..
I fussy cut them out and set aside to use on my card

The base of the card is Soft Suede and then a layer of vanilla and then another layer of Soft Sued that I embossed using the Woodland Textured EF. So love this Embossing Folder.

I added the sentiment using Elegant Eggplant ink, it is from the same stamp set.
I added a bit of linen thread and a few gold sequins. 
The leaves are added using dimensionals on the Crushed Curry leaf and the Cajun Craze leaf.
The Eggplant colored leaf is tucked under the sentiment panel and glued directly to the embossed layer.
Be sure and head over to the Sweet Sunday Blog to see what the rest of the team did with this great sketch.
