A little autumn vintage

We're sponsored by TLC at Outlawz Sketch this month - this was a shop I hadn't come across before.

I've used a combination of images to create this card, all autumn themed.
The leaf and acorn image at the centre has been coloured with Copics.  This is framed by a vintage border and I've also added an autumn sentiment.  The shape of the vintage frame reminded me of the sketch centre for this weeks challenge so I've used this instead of cutting it with a die.

Here's our sketch for this week

Once I'd coloured and cut the image out I distressed the edges with antique linen and vintage photo ink from Tim Holtz.  I've then scattered some embossing enamel around the edges.

I've used design papers from Lili of the Valley, some black ribbon and fours tiny wooden hearts.  I've taken a few liberties with the sketch this week ;)  but you can see the influence is there.
Hope you like my inspiration for this week and we see you at the challenge
