Play Date Cafe #156 and Retro Sketches #36

Good evening -- another post -- 2 in one night. I'll have to go to sleep now!

This week I combined Play Date Cafe's color challenge with the sketch from Retro Sketches.


I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the Play Date inspiration photos and colors. They scream fall and natural tones/textures.

I used Kraft paper and an Olive kraft paper for the base of my card. The stickers are "vintage" CTMH from the Enchanged set (GREAT colors in it). I stamped and trimmed the leaves and acorn from my stamp set Many Thanks, also using the sentiment from that set. The burlap ribbon, autumn terracota colored twine are also CTMH. Ivy Green Stick pins from Little Yellow Bicycle and dark cocoa pearls from Recollections (Michael's) finished it off.

Thank you for visiting - hurry back now!

Please remember to check out tons of inspiring artwork at both challenge blogs: Retro Sketches and Play Date Cafe.
