A Harvest of Warm Wishes

Good day everyone! It's gorgeous here...we've finally had a taste of summer these past weeks.

I seem to be in a Kraft crafting mode lately. That color just appeals to me. So I went very masculine and neutral for the Sketch challenge today at SCS.


First I stamped the wheat stamp in VersaMark and embossed it with Winter White EP on Kraft paper (I really wish we'd have a vanilla or cream embossing powder). Then I sponged Soft Suede all over that focal piece. The rest is actually pretty simple. It's a great sketch with lots of layers!
Short and sweet today! :)
Recipe: Stamps: Autumn Days, Beautiful Borders; Ink: VersaMark, Soft Suede; Paper: Soft Suede, Kraft, Confetti Cream, Kraft Patterns DSP; Accessories: Sponge, Winter White Embossing Powder, Piercer, Vintage Brads, Kraft Taffeta Ribbon, Dimensionals
