CYCI #136 - Sketch Challenge!

Hello everyone!
Welcome back to another AMAZING and creative challenge this week from over at Can You Case It!
This week, we have a sketch challenge for you! 
 Can You Case It

I LOVE LOVE LOVE this sketch - because I am lovin' the layers!! I had so much fun with this one, and I hope you do too!

Here's the details!....
I pulled out my Ken Oliver Color Bursts and created a warm background on watercolour paper with a real "autumn" feel.... Some of the colours I used were Merlot, Tangerine and Orange and that wonderful Yellow Ochre! Next I stamped that beautiful tree image from Unity Stamps set Could I Be Any Cuter. I used black ink but then embossed it with clear embossing powder to give it some SHINE!  I used another Unity Stamp for the sentiment - this time it's from the Let Your Wishes Fly sentiment kit. I layered all of this over some Kraft and Delightful Dijon cardstock from SU! My base seemed a bit too "White" for all of this wonderful color, so I used a bit of Blackberry Bliss, Pumpkin Pie and Delightful Dijon (stamped off) and used the popular splatter stamp from SU! in the Gorgeous Grunge collection. Finally I embellished this fun thank you card with some AWESOME fibres from EK Success! 

All of the CYCI Design Team members have  come up with some wonderful creations this week-be sure to check them out! Be sure to join this challenge - this sketch ROCKS!  And leave me some love in the comment section below so I know you stopped by! Have a GREAT week!
