Autumn Thanks

Happy Wednesday everyone!
The ladies over at Color Throwdown have presented another awesome color combo! I am really loving these color challenges. It allows me to learn new things each time I try them. :) I love that. I am also trying Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge for the first time! Weee!! So, here we go..
I used PTI's Aqua Mist, Ripe Avocado and Kraft. To substitute SU's Dusty Durango, I found a similar (*I think...*) shade from a paper pack I got from Michaels. Mercy's sketch calls for an oval but I wasn't too sure I could work it with the image I chose for this card. This image is part of a set from Inkadinkadoo called Autumn Foliage. I stamped it with Stazon Timber Brown. The sentiment I got from Studio G, stamped that with Memento Rich Cocoa. Three buttons from a pack I got from WalMart and finished it off with brown ribbon I got at the dollar bin from Michaels. **Click photo for larger image.**

I truly enjoyed this color combo and sketch. Have a great day everyone!! :)
