Happy Fall, Y'all!

Well, it's finally starting to feel like fall where I live, and I am truly enjoying the cooler weather!I really wish there were more fall colors here this year, but it has been so dry for the last few months!Flag football has ended for my little guy, now it's cheerleading for the twins and basketball for my son! Busy, busy, busy! But, in between all of the hectic hustle and bustle, I was able to eke out a card...I love the uptown houndstooth digi paper from Lindsay's Stamp Stuff, and I was able to use Lindsay's Leaf Prints digistamps in a way to satisfy my longing for pretty fall colors. I coated the leaves with Glossy Accents and let them curl a bit for a realistic look, and mounted them on some pretty textured chocolate colored cardstock that reminds me of a warm sweater, and some yummy ribbon and shabby seam binding.I based the card on a sketch from 2Sketches4You, and followed several challenges for this card:
