I started thought process of this card with the sketch challenge from The Paper Variety weekly challenge. It is a new challenge site that just lauched this past week! I am so excited to see what comes from this challenge site and hope is gets my creative mojo started up again!
I used a Studio G stamp I found in the Michael's $1 bin and stamped it on some orange marblized paper from The Paper Studio. The cut-out leaves are attached to the Imaginisce paper (back pattern). Strip patterns were cut out and added to the card. Cream cardstock (The Paper Studio) was inked with brown ink and tied with brown hemp string. "Thanks" is a diecut from the Cuttlebug.
