CAS(E) this Sketch 186...Fall Leaves Thanks

There's a new sketch over at CAS(E) this Sketch!  Here's my card and this week's sketch...
(I edited my card and moved my leaves a little lower to go a bit better with the sketch.)

Feeling in a "Fall" mood today...even though the heat index is in triple digits here in Virginia...ugh.  I used watercolor paper, watercolors, and Impression Obsession die, to make my leaves.  I colored the paper, then die cut.  I do think this is a first in maybe forever, or at least in a LONG time...I DIDN'T LAYER THE LEAVES!!  Watercolor paper is pretty thick anyway, but I thought they looked more like delicate leaves with single layers.  I added Lawn Fawn's Stitched borders(all of them still attached to one another)on an angle for the bottom of the card.  The sentiments are by Altenew.  Here's a close up...
I just can't get enough of these sketches, of late...SUCH FUN!!!  Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa

**EDITED**
Thank you so much, ladies, for the recognition of my card as a FAVORITE for this week's challenge...

...you made MY week!!!

  9. Hi Lisa, pretty card! I just uploaded mine and realized that we had the same ideas (fall and stitching). I was just in the mood for a fall card like you and wanted to do some stitching (inspired by Jennifer McGuire).
    Have a lovely day
