Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Autumn Card for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hi Stampers, today we have a sketch challenge and I wanted to use the new Beautiful Autumn stamp set and the coordinating Gilded Autumn DSP.  I love fall and the warm colors that the season brings and this  product suite just made me warm and longing for a fire and a cup of tea.    The colors in the paper and the stamp set and punch made this so easy to put together.  I can’t wait to use more from this suite on future cards.

The sketch:
