Well, there's another month gone and Fall is just around the corner.  The leaves are already beginning to fall in our neck of the woods and it sure is nice getting a little cool air at night.  Time to open the windows and let in the fresh air?

To celebrate with the season, I decided to go with a fall theme for this sketch, using Set 228 - Harvest - Pumpkins.  I have been playing around with Water Stamping this month (it just seems to go really well with the fall colors).  You can check it out in the Tips and Techniques Section.

For the ribbon, I embossed a piece of green card and ran it through a soda tab, colored with Copper embossing powder!

Here is my card that I made for the September Sketch Challenge.  You'll find all the rules and a few designs that some of the other designers have come up with right here.  I hope you'll find the time to take a shot at our September Challenge. Good luck!

If you need full directions for the card above, you'll find them right here.

Happy Fall ......
