Viva La Verve.. Happy Fall

Hello! Happy weekend everyone! Today I have another card for one of Amber's Viva La Verve challenges! This one is for the second October challenge -- details here. I used more from the new Verve Autumn release on this one!

In addition to the sketch, we were to use the colors Brown, Orange, Turquoise and White. I started with some patterned papers from Crate Paper School Spirit. I embossed the Every Season Plain Jane stamp with Chocolate Brown embossing powder. The Dickens quote reads, "Nature gives to every season a beauty all its own". The sketch has a sentiment panel over the larger circle. Since I used a quote instead of an image, I was going to replace the sentiment panel with an embellishment, then I thought how wonderful this quote would be to create a card for each of the seasons. "Happy Fall" is from the same named set, Happy Fall, and the leaf is one of many lovely ones in Autumn Splendor.

Here's the sketch inspiration:

Thanks so much for stopping by!
