Sweet Sketch Wednesday #72

Hi and Happy Thursday! After a many changed minds, mis-cut dp and totally changing the image, I finally have my card for this week's Sweet Sketch Wednesday ready to share with you.  {add sigh of relief here}

I had a totally different card made up in my head, I just couldnt get it to work! Then I was reminded of this great stamp set from MFT called Sheltering Tree, and then the fall themed button tree came to be. And hey .. is it just me, or do you just hate it when you cut your striped paper the wrong direction! Vertical stripes vs horizontial stripes! It has just been one of those days!
Stamps: Sheltering Tree (MFT)
Paper: Imaginisce Apple Cider dp, Very Vanilla,
Lagoon (unknown), Parakeet (unknown)
Ink: Hot Cocoa hybrid ink (CDS) Momento Tuxedo Black,
Dusty Durango, Prismacolor Pencils & Gamsol
Tools/Accessories: Labels 14, buttons from TE October KI KIT,
glue dots, sponge dauber
