Happy Fall

This is the card I created using this week's freebie from Designed 2 Delight.  The sketch I followed is from Sunday Sketch & Stamp.  The base of my card is brown.  For the 3 strips running down the card I used olive green, a brown striped patterned paper (from my box of scraps) and orange.  Around each strip I added faux stitching.  I colored the image using crayola and prisma colored pencils, cut the image out in a square, added faux stitching and backed it in burgundy card stock.  For the sentiment I punched a 1 3/8" circle. On the circle I wrote the sentiment happy fall, added faux stitching, backed it in yellow card stock and cut around it using scalloped scissors.  I added burgundy pearls to the upper corner of the green and the lower corner of the orange. I also added a bow made out of raffia to the sentiment.
