GS#62 - Happy Thoughts of Fall

You ever see a sketch and just have to drop everything and use it - NOW!  Maybe not, but if you are a papercrafter and read my blog on purpose (not just cause you are nice, mom - but thanks!!) then you are probably a fan of sketches too.
I LOVE this week's sketch from the Get Sketchy blog - That is why I do sketch challenges - there is no way EVER that I would have come up with a layout like this one!
I used some trusty tools - my Marvy Uchida oval punches - I've had them for a LONG time and totally never told my husband how much they cost when I bought them 4 years ago - it was a really big splurge at that time but they have been worth the $$.  Basic Grey patterned paper; Hero Arts tree stamp; Martha Stewart Coarse Clear Glitter; Cosmo Cricket Tiny Type and Stampendous Luxurious Velvet Brown Brocade stickers. 
Isn't it cool how the tree stamp fits in the oval so perfectly - I should make several cards with this tree and punch but right now I need to eat Egg Foo Young (how can something that looks so gross taste so great?)
