Freshly Made Sketches: Autumn Greetings

 Wasn't last week an amazing celebration of 500 sketches at Freshly Made Sketches?!  Have you checked out the list of prizes on the FMS Winner's post? If you played along you might be there!!  I also had prizes with the winner's announced here

Now it's time for our 501st sketch and I created it!!  It's always such a thrill to do a sketch and then see how all of you have used it.  Here's my card, then the sketch.

9.1.21 FMS 2

Usually when I do the sketch, I have a solid idea of what I'm going to do with it; in fact, sometimes I've even made the card.  I had a solid idea for this card, but then Honey Bee Stamps had their release that included the Patchwork Pumpkin set and everything changed.  I adore this pumpkin; I hit the order button the second it was available.  

There's actually another layer you can use behind so you have five patterned section and then there's ten patterns to choose from.  Isn't this patchwork look just what autumn is all about?!  (BTW - definitely check out this Patchwork Pumpkin card from my teammate Jen Timko - it's stunning.)  I used an earlier set also from Honey Bee - the Autumn die and the coordinating stamp set to add the sentiment.  Then the patterned paper is from their new release - Gingham Galore: Fall.

  I hope to see you playing along this week at Freshly Made Sketches!
