Our Creative Corner Challenge - Sketch #2

Hi everyone! For today's challenge on Our Creative Corner, Dawn has another sketch for everyone...and you can check out the sketch by clicking HERE.

My card is a 4" x 4" square card. The brown scalloped paper is one of the prints from SU's Afternoon Tea and the cream colored panel that the Happy Thanksgiving is stamped on is from the Fall Harvest Mat Pack DP that I picked up at Michael's. You probably can't see it in the picture, but this cream panel has a faint wheat print on it. The Happy Thanksgiving was stamped in Versamark and then heat embossed with Brown EP. All of the leaves are from SU's Autumn Harvest set. They were watercolored with Really Rust, Marigold Morning and Basic Brown Reinkers, cut out, and popped up on dimensionals. I glued down another square panel of the wheat printed DP to the inside of the card, and added one more watercolored leaf down in the lower left corner. See it peeking out at ya in the pic? :)

Wanna do some blog hopping and see the samples from my fellow OCC girls? Here are links to all their blogs: Amy, Cindy, Dawn, Jennifer, Laurie, and Lynda.
