Mercy, Another CTD61

DSCF5429

I told Tammy that I loved her colors for the Color Throwdown #61 this week SO MUCH, that I wanted to do another card---and this time, I incorporated Mercy's Sketch 40 into my card.  Here is the sketch:

MTSC40

and this time, I used one of the sponsor's stamps, a Carolyn King set called Whimsical Autumn; she designed this set last year and the proceeds went to the Alzheimer's Association.  I also pulled out some retired bits of DP that I always think I'll use, and I actually used them!  Here ya go:

Since I was still in that watercoloring mood, I pulled out my Watercolor Crayons....they give a different effect, especially on Kraft paper, but I liked the rustic feel they gave to the design.  I added a couple leaves as accents, along with a corduroy brad,  and I was done!  This will make a nice thank you, thinking of you, or even a birthday card!  Thanks for looking today!
