Sneak Peek- Happy Scenes

Hello stampers,
     Happy Thursday y'all, where did this week go? Beyond talking to contractors, I haven't gotten much done. I did see this week's sketch from Freshly Made Sketches #201, that I thought I would try out for today's card.
     I thought I would show another sneak peek from the upcoming holiday catalog coming out Sept. 1st. The set I used was Happy Scenes that goes with a new window frame-lit that I didn't use for this card. For the base of the card I used Tangerine Tango Card Stock, followed by a layer of Old Olive Card Stock that I stamped the leaf from the For All Things Stamp Set on with the same color of Ink & then added Metallic Sequins to all 4 corners. This was followed by a strip of Tip Top Taupe Card Stock, that really came out of nowhere but thought it would mix well for a fall card. For the main stamped image I stamped the fall looking stamp out of Happy Scenes in Memento Black Ink onto Very Vanilla Card Stock, coloring in the pumpkins with Tangerine Tango Marvelous Marker & the leaves with Old Olive Marvelous Marker. I then sponged the sky with Tempting Turquoise & Wisteria Wonder Ink, I didn't want the sky to look too dark & the grass I sponged with some Old Olive Ink. Finally I added a sentiment from the set to the base of the card using Memento Black Ink.
Here is the sketch I used for the card.
