Fall Splendor

Happy Wednesday!!  It's time for another challenge from The House That Stamps Built and this week we have an awesome sketch for you:

 And here is the card I created for your inspiration:
This card was made with one of those sheets of paper that come in a paper pack that you think is really pretty but wonder how you would ever use it.  The leaf image is beautiful and I love the text background, but the leaves are right in the center of the sheet, so would be covered up by any layers I added to the card.  But this sketch challenge gave me the perfect idea!  I started by die cutting the oval out of the middle of the sheet and layered it on a piece of copper glitter paper.  Then I used my stitched rectangle die to die cut the background panel, cutting around the already die cut oval hole.  I layered the glitter oval over the hole in the background, matching up the leaf ends as best I could and it is a perfect match!  The sentiment was stamped and heat embossed with clear embossing powder for shine on a scrap of the same sheet of patterned paper.  The little banner strips were also scraps from the same paper pack.  All in all, it was quick and easy, used up (most of) that sheet of paper, and is so pretty with all the sparkle!
Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you will hop over to the House blog to see the rest of the DT's creations and then get inky and play along with us.  And if you need any of the stamps I used, check out my 10% off your ENTIRE order coupon code over in my left sidebar.

Beautiful - and love ho you worked around the leaf pattern. The cooper glitter oval is perfect, just enough sparkle. Great job on the sketch.

You are too clever to use that patterned paper so easily to create this fabulous card! The sparkle looks fabulous with the branch of leaves and the text background looks perfect! Great take on the sketch!

A great way to use your pretty paper, the oval frame highlights the leaves beautifully. Thank you for playing along at Crafty Catz.
