CAS(E) this Sketch 39...Fall Leaves

The sketch this week at CAS(E) this Sketch has wonderful possibilities! I find, though, when I see these kind of sketches, I am one for seeing the sketch literally...and I really wanted to do something a bit different...just couldn't think of anything.  I was looking through some cards in my files and found a card that I believe was from Splitcoaststampers, made by Birgit Edblom, aka Biggan some 3 years ago (you can check out her incredible work HERE at her blog...her work is sheer artistry!!).  I loved everything about her card and thought it PERFECT for this sketch, so ...CAS(E) ing the sketch AND Birgit:)!!  Here is my card and the sketch...

I used a Spellbinder leaf die and made a mask.  I sponged the leaves with distress inks and with a light brown ink, using a W Plus 9 script border, stamped ever so lightly over each leaf.  The branch stamp is DRS Designs stamped in Early Espresso and the sentiment is Simon Says Stamp stamped with versamark and white embossed.  I dotted the berries with Enamel Accents.

Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa
