Color Challenge 498 & Sketch Challenge 508

Hello & Happy Wednesday!

Also a very happy October 1st! Where has the year gone??!!

Anyways, today I sat to craft a bit before I head out for Ryan's doctor appointment this afternoon. I wanted to play along with the SCS Color Challenge yesterday but I worked on Christmas craft show things & my Halloween Tissue Box. After I saw the SCS Sketch Challenge today, I decided to combine the 2 challenges on one card.

Here are this week's colors & the sketch:

Elegant Eggplant, Crushed Curry & Garden Green

These colors reminded me of Fall and i'm loving the fact that the ladies from the Color Challenge used Elegant Eggplant. It is a very unused color but one I really love!
I used an embossing folder that I picked up last year at the York Heirloom Stamp Show from Darice. I was drawn to the pretty variety of leaves. I embossed my 3 very pretty Fall colored cardstock with it and layered it onto a pc of Very Vanilla. My piece of designer seris paper is from last year's Fall paper called Sweater Weather. I used a retired border punch from Stampin Up called Eyelet Border Punch. My sentiment is from the For All Things stamp set out of the Holiday Mini.
Hope you like!
