Academic Autumnal Thanks

Lawn Fawn Stitched Leaves, Tag It You're It, Smitty's ABCs, Winter Gifts

More fun playing with CTS#78 and Make the Day Special's Colour Scheme B: carrot colours. With the new academic year approaching I thought I'd better tackle some thank you cards and nothing means back to school like stomping through leaves on your way there! I've distressed my embossing paste, card and label with Antique Linen Distress Ink and coloured the leaves with lots of messy distress inks (I'm still cleaning my hands!) and a spritz of glimmer mist which I've also used as the splatters from the sketch.
