October Sketch and Dare Challenge by Tonya Gibbs

I wanted to share with you a Thank You card that I created for the
 October Sketch & Dare Challenge

Here is a glimpse at this month's sketch

I used the new Pretty-Cornucopia die to create my focal point on the card.

This month's DARE is to use BURLAP! 
I replaced the ribbon in the sketch for a piece of Burlap Ribbon. 

The sketch shows a ribbon bow and other filler dies. I replaced the ribbon bow with the Pretty-Cornucopia die. Since the die had so many details, I decided to cut it from 4 different card stock colors and paper piece it together.  I love how it now serves as the focal point on my card, changing the look of the sketch.

I used the scraps from the front of the card, to decorate the inside. The pumpkin was the remains of the yellow layer used on the front.  I used my Distress Markers in Ripe Persimmon and Peeled Paint to add color to the pumpkin.  

Here is a process video showing how the card came together
