Viva la Verve October 2017 Sketch

 photo VLVOct2017pic.jpg

Once again bringing up the rear with October's Viva La Verve sketch.  Still enjoying Fall to the fullest as we are having a glorious one here with lots of sunshine and warm temperatures.  Add that to beautifully turning maple leaves and I am in heaven :) 

I carried on with the Fall theme on my card, using one of my favorite lines ever, Stella and Rose by My Mind's Eye.  Lovely rich colours that remind me of the changing leaves and the blue sky I see out my front window - happy sigh....

Paired the paper with Verve's newly released Autumn Leaves and matching Falling Leaves die set.   Added pumpkins and for what it is worth, some tealish/turquoise maple leaves - only in card making can you make them any colour you want to match your card {grin}.   Always great to tell people you are thankful for them so replenishing my stash so I have a few on hand to give out.

Would love for you to come and play along - after all you do get a chance to win some free Verve!  Need some additional inspiration, check out the challenge gallery for some inspiration.

Have a fabulous day!  Thankful for you ♥

Oh, Marisa, I LOVE this card! What a beautiful take on the sketch, and I love the perfect ribbon and DP! And what a great idea to emboss the layer under it. Beautifully done, and I am so thankful for you and all your inspiration! Blessed Sabbath day to you and yours! Hugs!
