Sketch Challenge: Leave Me Smiling

Good Morning! Today IS Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Sketch Challenge day at THE SWEET STOP! Click on over to THIS BLOG HERE to see the latest sketch SSS20 and play along!

For my card below, I used a Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps DIGI Stamp! Ain't this little bear the cutest raking up those leaves? AW! {CLICK HERE to purchase him and a few sentiments that go with him!} As soon as I saw him I remembered this old (and retired) paper set I hadn't used but just one time way back when! Perfect for this image and all the fall colors, don't you think?

This sketch is a yummy one, so easy to play with! If you know me, it takes me FOREVAH to make a card! Well, this sketch had me done within an hour from start to finish! {YES, believe it or not, but a card UNDER an hour is good for me! LOL!} I used my Copics for coloring, Nestibilities for oval and square diecutting and embossing. ! A little dab of Hobby Lobby ribbon knotted to the left balances out the Dew Drops (by Robin's Nest; available from Bev at Precious Scraps) up at top right!

I used my Spellbinders Nestibilities to cut out the sentiment from the cardstock and to frame it with an oval scallop Nestibilities die that matches the card-front....

I thought I would take a close up shot at the digi so you can see the detail in the digi stamp! Cute, huh? This Leave me Smiling Bear is just $3.00 and comes with four sentiments, too!
Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you have a fabulous day!
Back tomorrow!

Fabulous sketch! And such an adorable image and I agree, perfect with the fall colors DSP. I have never used Copics yet. I am going to have to do some shopping and try them out.

Adorable card, Nicole, and beautiful coloring! That is wonderful designer paper -- wish it weren't retired.

Beautiful card Nicole. Love the colour and patten combinations.
Although I'm not looking forward to raking all my leaves yet! Yikes.
