JUGS Challenge

Well it is about time I managed to post again.  I am going through some really difficult trials in my personal life and because of it my blogging has taken a back seat.  I do believe I have walked through the fire and fnally come out on the other side.  My desire to create is returning and with that desire I created the following card. 

 I LOVE the products that I used on this card. 
I used the stamp sets Gently Falling (123804), which can be found in the Holiday Mini Catalog, and Thank You Kindly (111700), which is in the main Idea Book and Catalog.
Gently Falling Clear-Mount Stamp Set - by Stampin' Up!
I love autumn and Gently Falling is the perfect stamp set for it.  Each leaf in the set has two stamps, an outline and the inside.  This time I used only the outline of the stamp.  I stamped it on a piece of very vanilla that on which I had applied three different colors of ink, pool party, soft suede, and more mustard, using sponges.
The designer paper I used is also in the Holiday Mini catalog and is called Spice Cake (124003).  The colors in it are soft suede, pool party, more mustard, pear pizazz, river rock, and very vanilla.  You have to see it in real life to see how beautiful it is.

I got the sketch for this card from the this weeks challenge at JUGS.
