Clean & Simple 204 - Autumn Birthday Wishes

Last week I saw this card over on Leslie's blog The Crooked Stamper, and thought HEY I LIKE THAT SKETCH! I want to play!

(Feel free to assume there's a pod person inhabiting my corporeal form...I realize that's a big switch from oh, say, 6 months ago or so!)
Supplies: papers from Basic Grey "Indian Summer;"
sentiment from AmyR stamps (All that Scraps);
Colorbox chalk ink - Magenta; clear EP;
circle punches
I thought I'd used up the rest of my Indian Summer pad because I'd just used a full 6x6 sheet a few weeks ago that was in the drawer by itself...and then I found the rest tucked away in a different drawer, in a place I generally don't keep paper, along with 4 or 5 other decimated (but not finished) pads. It was a little bit exciting & confusing all at the same time ;)

Here's the sketch - the linky is open until Friday, but this particular sketch challenge has no hard & fast deadlines, it's purely play for fun.
Totally fun way to use up some of the smaller scraps of paper you've got laying around!
BRB!
xoxo,
Jessi
