Happy Thanksgiving...

Hello again! This is my second post today. I was busy, busy, busy up in my craft cave last night! Woo Hoo! Made a bunch of cards. Here's one I made using the current CAS(E) This Sketch challenge #50:

...and here is the inside:

...and the sketch:

I used a wood grain embossing folder for the main panel and went around the edges lightly with Walnut Stain DI. The leaves are die cut from paper I made using various Distress Inks. See?

How fun it was to do this! And since I made my own inky paper I'm linking this up to the Moxie Fab World Color Media challenge. The sentiment was stamped, cut out and the edges inked before being adhered with foam squares. Masked the inside sentiment from two different sets, added another die cut leaf and I was done.

So what are you waiting for? There's still time to play along in both challenges. (MFW's challenge ends tomorrow. Just sayin'.) Thanks for stopping by!

This is a beauty, too, Chris! I can't get over how perfect those leaves look made with your own inky paper.

Oh, how very, very pretty! Love the idea of a wreath design made from fall leaves! And your handmade paper is just soooo perfect for the leaves here. LOVE the wash of color! Absolutely gorgeous!
