A "3 in 1" Challenge Card

I am WAY behind on my challenges this week so I combined three challenges into this one creation.

The sketch is from The Fresh Batch "Stamps and Smiles" Sketch Challenge ... the Fall/Autumn theme is for the Our Creative Corner Challenge and for the Stamp Something - Favorite Embellishments Challenge, I'ved used ribbons & pearls ... my two favorites.

The ribbon comes from a local wholesale company called The Flower Factory and my friend Terri Snode (Terri's Cards N' More) shared it with us at our last get together. The leaf main image was also an RAK from my friend Kay Squires (Creativity is Good) ... from the GinaK "Autumn Leaf" stamp set. Inks used are Versafine Sepia and Kaleidocolor Autumn Leaves. Papers are Old Olive, Very Vanilla and Really Rust. Other items used are Kaiser bronze half pearls, dimensional tape and Nestabilities (scallop circles).

Thanks for stopping by and be sure to come back tomorrow for the Sharon Johnson's STAMP SIMPLY Challenge. Should be great fun!!!

Love your fall card. The colors are so rich and vibrant and the plaid works wonderfully with these colors. I really love the stamped leaves. They look almost like they are flocked in the photo. So happy you could play along with us this week at the OCC!
