Paper Smooches Designer Drafts Series Sept 9-15

Happy hump day everyone!  Today I had three new items from Paper Smooches that I have been "die-ing" to use!!!  I just got these last week and they are a part of their newest release for September 2013!  This weeks challenge over on the PS Sparks Blog is the "Designer Draft" series where they give you a sketch to follow as your inspiration!  Here is this weeks sketch:

...and here is the card that I created....

These are the 3 new releases that I used on this card. They are Trees 1, Leaves 1 and Gently Seasoned.

I used one of the tree dies and I ran the set of 4 leaves thru my die cutter 5 times to get all the leaves on this card.  The sentiment came from the Gently Seasoned stamp set.  You can still create the same concept of this card with stamping using just the stamp set!   I love dimension and texture, so I had to use the dies! lol  :)  All of the papers used came from the Studio Calico Snippets 6x6 paper pad.

If you'd like to play along with this challenge this week or get loads of inspiration and ideas, please visit the Paper Smooches Sparks blog HERE.  

Happy Scrapping!
