Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 237

Good morning!!  It's time for another Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge!  Want to play along?  Here is the deal: make a card with this layout and use the InLinkz button down at the very end of this post to enter your card. The links will close on Friday at 10 PM (Mountain Time). Be sure to link directly to the blog post or gallery image which features your card. You may post a picture of the sketch on your blog, but please save the image to your computer first. Use the keyword SSSC237 if you plan to post your card in an online gallery.

I picked up some of the goodies from the new My Favorite Things release and they arrived yesterday - so I couldn't wait to use them!  This is Lisa Johnson's new set, Out on a Limb.

I cut out the leaves in 3 different autumn colors and then used the negative of the die cut to use as a stencil for the leaf placement.  That was the easiest way for me to place them all; there was absolutely no way I'd remember where they all went.

I used some Fog card stock for the background and then I used the Rectangle Frames Die-namics from MFT for the orange outline.

I stamped the sentiment on a Sentiment Strips Die-namics in Hot Fudge ink and then added the little leaf accents in Tangy Orange.  LOVE that Lisa added those mirror image leaves!  So brilliant.

That's it for me today.  Please do pop over and take a peek at what the rest of the fabulous Sweet Sunday Stampers have whipped up for you this week:
