SC201 - Happy Thanksgiving

Today's card is for yesterdays sketch challenge over at Splitcoast Stampers, I really liked the look of this sketch with all of the layers and the main focal point in the center. I used the stamp set Seasonal Whimsy and stamped it in a spectrum fall colored ink pad, then stamped it again and cut out the smaller sized leaf to place on the edge of the image. The designer papers I used are from two different packs, the mustard colored paper is from the East Coast Prep designer pack and the olive stripe is from Summer Picnic. The Really Rust piece of card stock is embossed using my new Pumpkin Harvest Cuttlebug embossing folder that I got for my birthday from my friend Bonnie (thanks Bon I love it).
Today was a beautiful fall day the temperature was in the 70's, the sun was out and the leaves were falling! After running a few errands this morning my son Connor and I spent most of the afternoon out side playing in the back yard, swinging on the swing set, playing in the sand box and jumping in the leaves.
