Sunday Stamp Leaf

Hey, hey - back again for a sketch challenge at Sunday Stamps.  This week's sketch was designed by Monica.  I love how the sections are different sizes.  I decided to use Comfort Cafe for my paper and spent a lot of time making "Baby Wipe" leaves with different sets and dies.  I settled on a single leaf on a circular background....that Cajun Craze piece at the top of the card was just too busy to "support" the other leaves; to my mind anyway.

Rather than a strip of ribbon along the side I used the Double Scallop Ribbon Border punch and ran a piece of Early Espresso Baker's Twine down the middle.

Give this sketch a try, as you can see from Monica's sketch - you can use any shape as the focal point, so the sky's the limit.  Check out what the other Design Team Members have created over at Sunday Stamps and when you're finished with your creation be sure to link it to the blog so we can check out what you've come up with.

Thankfully, the leaves haven't started to change here - the weekend is suppose to be a good one, but it's suppose to get cooler Monday - so I'll be enjoying a bit more deck time for a couple of days.
If you're a fellow teacher, I hope your first few days back a school were good.
Thanks for stopping by for a visit.

Love your fall card Joan! That leaf is just gorgeous!

The leaves are well into their change here....we're expected to get a big rain/wind storm this weekend so I have a feeling most of the leaves will be disappearing.
