Freshly Made Sketches #202

Another quick post - I am beyond amazed that I've been so crafty this weekend! 

I was totally inspired by Amy's sketch this week at Freshly Made Sketches:


I had this little button saved for just this card I think... what do you think?



Would you take a little look at my NEW Darice embossing folder?  I LOve it - it is called Leaves.  SSS provided the oak leaf, and Technique Tuesday the sentiment.

So kind of YOU to stop by for a visit!  Thanks!

You've captured autumn exquisitely! The embossing folder, the acorn, the oak leaf...stunning! Side story: my dad, many years ago, transplanted a wee oak tree from his home province, into our front yard. The first year, it was a mere twig, standing 7 inches tall and sporting two of the biggest, prettiest oak leaves I've ever seen! Over the years, its grown (and has off-spring in other spots in the yard), becoming a most tall, sturdy oak - much like my dad was. The urn we chose for his ashes: a deep silver, burnished with lighter silver oak leaves...Thank you for this beautiful card; thank you for touching my heart!

What a gorgeous sketch, and what a gorgeous card, Michele! That acorn adornment was seriously made for this card!!! Love that white/Kraft combo!!

I would have hoarded that button forever, what a great design Michele! I think that's why I stamp instead of embellish, I hate the thought of using it and then I won't have it anymore... what if I can't get it again lol.
