SSS17- Back to School or Fall



This week the Sweet Stop sketch blog has a spin, make a card with a back to school or fall theme. I used one of Deedee's adorable digi bears, Leave Me Smiling. I colored him with Copics and added a partially stamped branch from the Sweet Dreams set. A lot of people seem to like the fall season and though there are things I like about it the ensuing cold weather is not one of them! It is fun to be using a different color scheme and you'll be seeing quite a few fall inspired creations:) Thanks so much for dropping by and as always your comments really do leave a smile on my face!

Supplies:
Stamps: Leave Me Smiling, digi set, Sweet Dreams, Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps
Paper: Gina K pure lux 120#, DP?
Ink: Rich Cocoa Memento
Tools: Embossing folder, Swiss Dots, Cuttlebug, MS lattich punch, Nestibilites classic circle, paper piercer
Other: Twine, Copics

What a warm and cozy card, Leah! The colors are so fun -- they have a bit of summer and a bit of fall feel to them -- perfect for this time of year. I love the twine bow, and how you used the branches from the Sweet Dreams set. I hear you about not liking how fall heralds the cold weather -- I hate being cold -- LOL! But I do love Fall! Thanks for sharing this lovely card with us.
