Ready for Fall!

Quick little post to share a fall card I created.  The cooler temperatures are really putting me in the mood for fall.
I used sketch # 132 from Retro Sketches as my inspiration.

    Ok, so I may not have nailed the sketch, but it gave me the inspiration.  Inked up this stamp I purchased from Flourishes (no longer in business) almost a year ago and had never used.  Love how the coloring turned out! I used Distress Inks and my water brush.  Added some ink to the edges of a page from an old book, a little stamping a little distressing and a little bit of washi tape.  Used a Memory Box label die, that I purchased on sale from Dies R Us, for the first time for my sentiment.
Thanks for stopping by!  Hope you take time to leave a comment, I'd love to hear from you!
God bless!
