Fall colors

Hi all! I just completed this card for the sketch challenge over at SCS (#192) and really liked how it turned out and thought I'd share!

I stamped the leaves in Palette Noir and colored them using my prisma color pencils and blended with OMS. I also added a bit of sky blue chalk ink to the back ground so it wouldn't be so stark white. The distressing is done with a pair of scissors. I used the same stamps for the back ground panels with versamark ink and some clear embossing powder. I really love how they turned out!
I got out my sew mini and added some zigzag stitches to distinguish between the two panels. While trying to figure out what I could add to the side to finish this card off, I ran across these flat disc's that I've had forever - I can't even remember where I got them or who makes them. I just added a few drops of glue to the back and stuck them on. Their antique color goes so well with this color combo!

I hope everyone has a great week!

I love the fall season and this card is perfect for the autumn! What a great addition using those discs in such an awesome hue to coordinate with the rest of the card! Very pretty!

Beautiful card! I love machine stitching and your zig zags add a nice touch to your card. Great coloring, too.
