Gently Falling - Sketch Challenge

Good evening!  It's amazing how the weather has changed and fall is definately in the air.  Because of our beautiful weather as soon as I saw the sketch for this weeks Stamping 411 challenge I knew I had to use the Gently Falling stamp set for the Holiday mini catalog.  This has definately been one of my go to sets lately.

This card has a base of Pool Party Cardstock with a layer of Pear Pizzaz that I ran through the Big Shot with the Houndstooth Embossing Folder.  The designer paper is Spice Cake and coordinates with the Gently Falling stamp set.  I stamped the leaves and acorn on Very Vanilla cardstock and since these are two step stamps I didn't need to color them in I just stamped the color with the fill in stamp (I did use a blender pen and More Mustard ink to randomly add some additional texture on the leaves for fun).  Then I cut out each of the leaves with paper snips.

The bow uses the fabulous new Early Espresso 3/8" Quilted Satin Ribbon (love the texture) and an orange Fire Crystal brad.  The last touch was the greating from the Grateful Greeting stamp set that was punched out with the oval punch and then attached to the card with dimensionals.  Now check out the challenge sketch....

This card is so pretty and is definately getting me in the mood for fall.  I'll be sharing several other projects with the same product suite throughout the week so make sure to check back.

Have a great week!
