Retro Sketches #37 - Fall Blessings

It was a long busy weekend working on the home improvements and today was filled with lots of running around.  I finally sat down for a time out and made this card for Retro Sketches.  Check out this sketch - looks amazing so I had to give it a go!

This one was lots of fun - I got to play with a new pad of Authentique paper and mix all the patterns together.  I used some old Cuttlebug dies that have been out of sight, out of mind, and enjoyed blinging it up with pearls and gems - do you see a theme going here? 

 Thanks for having a look - and for keeping me on track!  Have a great day!

Wow Jeanne, this is gorgeous. All of those patterned papers are beautiful.

Cathy Weber said...

Wow, the patterned papers are beautiful on this one the rick rack edges and the sentiments in the corner with the scattering of pearls. Those pearls drew my eye all the way across the card.

This is just lovely Jeanne! I have so much trouble with fall colors, but you've done it perfectly! Love the mix of papers (which you do so well) and that luxurious velvet ribbon! Hope you're doing well!
