Mashed Up Play Date

VLV Sketches

The vertical orientation of this sketch wasn't working for me so I flipped it.  Figured if Diva Moe can do it so can I {grin}.

I combined it with this week's Play Date Cafe colour challenge and The Friday Mash Up challenge to use leaves and twine on your card.  Hello!!  Did anyone say leaves, wink, wink.

Hang in there!  Fall will soon be over and I'll be moving on to Christmas cards and you can get sick of those for a change of pace LOL!

Having fun playing with my burlap and went with the cream colour this time round.   Love the texture it gives a card!! Added some embossed wood grain in the background and "Look, Ma!! No maple leaf!!"  Used some different leaves this time.  A few buttons with a bit of green twine and I was good to go :)

Have a fabulous day and thanks for visiting today.
