Celebrating Autumn Freshly Made

I really like this weeks sketch challenge by Freshly Made Sketches (FMS210).  Very clean and classic!

I kept it simple but I love the look!  I started with a Raspberry Berry card base with an Oatmeal Cookie top layer.  I used Citrus Cooler Color Splash to spritz the Cookie layer then die cut the leaves using the Autumn Time die set.  The pattern paper is from the Harvest Days Prints paper pad.  The sentiment comes from the Autumn Time stamp set and I used Raspberry Berry ink for it.

Here's a closer look at the die cutting.  I was debating using 3 different patterns of paper but this particular pattern seemed to be the best for what I wanted.

Head on over to Freshly Made Sketches and see all the great inspiration cards and those meeting the challenge!

Very pretty - I love the same dp you used with all three leaves. It has been so much fun working with fall cards this season. Great job.

I love that your "squares" are die cut leaves and the patterned paper behind them is so pretty!

I really like how the leaves are cut outs. You do very well with your sprays and making them look good. There is a bit of a trick to them.
