Find Yourself a Cup

Today is a beautiful fall Sunday here in NJ. The leaves are gorgeous! I played along with Karen Giron's Sweet Sunday Sketch today, and you can see the influence of the day in my card. I really loved working this sketch. Here it is...

and here is my card. I turned the sketch sideways to make it work with the sentiment.

I really love the way it came out. I have had this fabulous sentiment stamp from Quietfire Design for a while, and I finally inked it up and used some new papers that I got recently. I love the warm colors and the lace in this card... makes me want to call my sister and invite her over for tea and a talk...
