A Fun & Fabulous Sketch

We have a fun sketch challenge for you on the blog today.  Our wonderful teamie Ria came up with a great sketch for you to play with.

Isn't it fabby?!  

I turned the sketch on its side but due to size, I had to take out one layer.  I used Top Hat Pumpkin and colored him with Copics.  Love this new image!  Check out the other great new images in the shop.

I used the Framelits Label Die from Stampin' Up! to create the shaped layer.  To create the mat, I traced around the outside of the die and hand cut the shape.  I had some silk leaves that I thought I could use as embellishments on this card, but they were too big!  I cut the ends of a couple of the leaves off and used them instead!  I used a wooden button from American Crafts.  I wanted to run some twine through the button holes, but the button already had glue dots on it!  I placed a pearl over the center instead and love the way it looks!  A little raffia adds the perfect fall touch.

Card measures 5.5" x 4.25"
