Fall card

Hi everyone! Long time no post! My day job has been very hectic lately!  I used the weekly sketch from My Favorite Things for this card.

I colored the stamp using distress markers and then spritzed with water to get this blended water color look. When choosing the papers for the back ground I first wanted to go with yellows and orange, but nothing seem to grab me. Ended up going with greens (always a staple with me) and things worked a lot better. So, this actually is an "early" fall card. Hehe!

Leaf branch stamp is from Memory Box and the sentiment is from Papertrey, Ink.
Distress markers
Designer paper - DCWV
Green cardstock - Bazzill
Beige cardstock - HOTP
Gold buttons - American Crafts
Sentiment is cut out with a die from Verve
