WSC #58: Autumn beauty

This is my first challenge card for Beate's Weekend Sketch challenge since she came back from her summer break.

This was a little hard for me. I wasn't quite sure WHAT to do with all those different blocks. But, obviously, it came together in the end.

All of the color blocks are embossed with Cuttlebug folders; all of that cardstock is from my stash. So this was nice in that it was frugal.

The main stamped image is from a new set of Inkadinkadoo stamps that I got this last week. I stamped it with bark ink, then clear embossed it. I inked the edges of the main panel with the bark ink, as well. The sentiment is from a Studio G (Michaels $1) clear stamp set; it was stamped with Versafine Sepia ink.

Materials: base cardstock (Bazzill); colored cardstocks (stash); designer paper (Die Cuts with a View); ink: bark (Versacolor), sepia (Versafine); embossing powder (Stampendous); embossing folders (divine swirls, pumpkin swirls, swiss dots); satin ribbon (Michaels); adhesive (Pioneer mounting tape & pop-dots).

Thanks for looking.
