Fall Foliage Meets Comfort Cafe

Happy Saturday, and welcome to another Diva Sketch Challenge! We have some new members on the team, so be sure to head over to UDI and see what everyone has created!  Here is the sketch for the week, DSC209.

I rotated the sketch for a horizontal format.  Instead of the sentiment, I added some leaves.  I was playing with the Comfort Cafe DSP last week, and you'll see that it was also my inspiration this week.   I just love it when everything coordinates!

Here is a list of the supplies I used.
  • Stamps ~ Fall Foliage
  • Papers ~ Comfort Cafe DSP, Very Vanilla, Cajun Craze, Summer Starfruit, Soft Suede
  • Inks ~  Soft Suede, Cajun Craze
  • Accessories ~ Stampin' Dimensionals, Soft Suede 3/8" Taffeta ribbon
The color combination was based on all of the colors of the Comfort Cafe DSP.  I know my supply list is almost identical to last week's card, but I think it is a totally different look. I stamped the leaves from French Foliage and cut them out.  Then I crumpled them up and inked them with some Soft Suede ink and a sponge.  I did not have access to my punches, so I added a thin strip of ribbon to replace that element in the sketch.What do you think?  I love to read your comments, so please leave one!

Enjoy the weekend and these crisp days of autumn!  I am seeing more color each day, but we are still a long way from the color peak here in New Jersey.



  1. Barbara, this is gorgeous! You're right, it's a completely different look from last week. I love what you did with the leaves! Just beautiful!
