365 Cards Sketchy Sunday!

My goodness, how time flies!! Only one more week of summer for us and well, as our friend Vicky said last week, only 4 more months until Christmas! Because fall is my favorite time of year, I welcome it with open arms, and only a bit of dread for the crazy snow that follows. But until then, I will enjoy the changing of the landscape around me, the nice crisp breezes that flow through my screen door and the soft comfort of a nice sweater. Aahh... fall, how I adore you. And to further celebrate my favorite time of year (that really hasn't begun yet*sigh*), I have today, a fall card to share. But first, here is today's sketch:
And my card:
I think these are some of my favorite colors. Gold, Brown, Dark Chocolate, Red, Orange. Such comfort they bring! I am SO excited because my Papertrey Ink package showed up in the mail last week. It was such a wonderful treat because I was having a really horrible day and it just brightened everything up! I have 7 stamp sets to open. I think I am going to milk it for all its worth and open a new set every month or maybe 2  month, then I can really enjoy them. So for my first set I opened Autumn Abundance. Which is a very elegant set. I also used the PTI Autumn Abundance pattern paper, which is just a delight to use. As a final touch I used some Gold glimmer mist over the entire thing. Gives it a nice shimmer.

Ok thats all for today. Going to spend some time with the fam and I will see you tomorrow!
Cheers~
