Brilliant Fall - Card Patterns 88

If you hadn't already heard DRS Designs is sponsoring this week's challenge, Sketch #88, on the Card Patterns blog!! Make sure to check out THIS post to find out how you can play along and be entered to win a $10 gift voucher to DRS Designs' online store!

For my card today I have used Sketch 88 along with two of the BRAND NEW stamps that DRS Designs has just released! Check out the New Releases Page to see all of the wonderful new Fall stamps they have available for purchase.

To start my card I stamped Jumping Into Autumn (M498) onto an off-white cardstock, then colored the cutie and his pile of leaves with markers. The image was matted with red cardstock, which matches a few of the leaves in the pile. The sentiment, Brilliant Fall Greeting (D502), was stamped onto a gold cardstock with brown ink, then  a small triangle was cut out of the left end for a bit of visual interest.

Because my image was so prominent on the page I didn't want the vertical strip from the sketch to get lost behind it. In its place, and to help hold the image onto the card, I used a mini clothespin. This helped to add some dimension and I was so glad to be able to use one of these, which I have been holding onto for a couple of months. :)

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Super cute! Makes me wish I was a kid again, where I could do that instead of raking the leaves! lol

Love the image and coloring is terrific. Like the use of clothes pin.
I am hanging some clothes out today but that one is toooo little for me. :)
