What If? Wednesday Sketch Challenge

Good morning everyone and happy Wednesday!  I hope that you have been having a great week.  I know here in Milford, Ohio it's been getting pretty chilly and I LOVE it!  Fall is approaching us and I couldn't be more thrilled.  Something about the crisp air and the overall mood in the atmosphere just gets me all cheery.  
Speaking of getting all cheery...we are having a sketch challenge at Repeat Impression for What If? Wednesday! and we would love for you to play along.
Here is Wendy's sketch #S1912
Here is my take on this great sketch

I wanted to go with a Fall feel for this card and I couldn't be more pleased with how it turned out.
The stamps used are both from Repeat Impressions
Maple Leaf Sil (5127) 
&
May All Your Dreams (423)
What I did with the Maple Leaf stamp was use Memento ink colors: Rich Cocoa, Tangelo, Lady Bug and Bamboo Leaves to give it a Fall like appearance and repeatedly stamped the image over a piece of  ivory card stock.
The sentiment stamp was inked using Memento Rich Cocoa ink and layered onto some HOTP paper lifted up on one thickness of foam adhesive. 
All the paper is from HOTP (Hot Off The Press) except for the ivory card stock and brown card stock used for the base.
4 gold brads are used to embellish

Please take a moment to check out the other Rock Stars take on this sketch!
We will be accepting submissions to this S1912 Sketch Challenge until 5pm EST on October 2nd. All participants will be automatically entered into our random drawing. Then on October 3rd we will post a new challenge and announce the winner of our September challenges. One lucky person will win a $25 Repeat Impressions Gift Certificate!

Thank you for stopping by have a great day, take care and I hope you can do something creative today!
