Thanks {MFTWSC142}

It's time to get sketchy with the MFT Wednesday Stamp Club and sketch 142.

Hop over to the MFT Blog for all the details and to link up your creation. You could win up to a $20 gift certificate to the MFT Boutique just for playing along!

I created a fall thank you card with this week's sketch. I'm not sure I'm ready to let go of the warm summer weather just yet though. But I guess the payoff is all the lovely fall colours...beautiful nature!

I started with a card base of Primitive White then added layers of Olive and Kraft. The cluster of leaves was created by first cutting out the Smooth White leaves with the Fall Foliage Die-namics. Then I stamped the leaves from Fall Foliage with Olive Premium Dye Ink, Fuse Green Premium Dye Ink, Tangy Orange Premium Dye Ink, Hot Fudge Premium Dye Ink, and Kraft Premium Dye Ink.

For the sentiment I used the Fishtail Flags STAX Die-namics to cut out the Primitive White flag, then I stamped 'thanks' with Hot Fudge Premium Dye Ink.

On the lower part of the card I added layers of Fuse Green and Tangy Orange. Then I stamped the dots from Large Scale Backgrounds (this month's Free with $60 set) with Hot Fudge Premium Dye Ink. I tied a Hemp Cord bow to finish it off.

On the inside I added the swirl stamped in Fuse Green Premium Dye Ink then I stamped the rest of the sentiment with Hot Fudge Premium Dye Ink.

Have fun with this week's sketch!

Here are the supplies I used:

I like how you used all the leaves for the circle part of the sketch - very clever! I really like the inside too with that swirl under the sentiment!
