Papertake Weekly meets A Spoonful of Sugar

Papertake weekly asks that you make a card pertaining to Autumn ~ autumn themed cards - autumn stamps, autumn colours or anything you associate with autumn!
Nikki from A Spoonful of Sugar gave us a fabulous sketch to work with. So I colladed the two and voila ~ this is what I came up with:
Boy did this card take me too long!! First I had a ton of leaves cut out and I rearranged them a gazillion times! Then I just decided in the end to go with one leaf and stamp some leaf swirls with a stamp that I got last year! For the horizontal panel I ran it through the argyle cuttlebug folder to match my paper then I sanded it and lastly ran it through my tea dye inkpad. I just love the way it turned out!! This sentiment goes perfect for my SIL in Texas ~ she is always saying Y'all!!

Paper: Fancy Pants All Fall
Stamps : Sugar Nellie, Corner stamp ~ SU, Leaf Swirl ~ Inkadinkado
Ink: distressed inks, Brown timber staz-on
Accessories: Leaf ~ cuttlebug die, buttons ~ stash

Well thanks for stopping by and have a happy Friday!! Hopefully I will get some blog hopping in later today after I wake up!! Off to bed ~ night.....
