Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge #39

As I am prone to type in some of my emails :::emerging from lurk mode:::

I've been AWOL for the better part of the last month. I'm having some health issues and I seem to spend all my energy each day just working and getting the minimal done around the house. I have been crafting, but just get too tired at night to post to the blog. :(

But today is a new day and if nothing else I can at least post this. Hopefully with the next couple of days I can post some of the other projects which I've completed in the last month.

So, having said that, I'd like to post my attempt at Mary-Jo's challenge for this week.

I knew when I saw this sketch that I really wanted to make a card for it. I've been wanting to get some Thanksgiving/Fall cards stockpiled as well, so that's where this card started.

The circle element in Mary-Jo's original sketch kinda got oversized!!! I love the new Cuttlebug die/embossing folder sets and have been wanting to use this fall leaf on something.

I distressed the edges of the orange paper block with the Making Memories distressing tool, then inked the edges with the Tea Dye ink. Otherwise, it's a pretty simple and straightforward card.

Materials: cardstock (Bazzill); designer paper (Basic Grey Mellow); stamp (Inkadinkadoo); ink (Tea Dye distress ink); metal (Amaco Artemboss); die/embossing (Cuttlebug); ribbon (Michaels); adhesives (Pioneer mounting tape & Pop-dots).

As always, thanks for looking.
