Kid's Play for Flourishes

Hello my friends!!
I am entering the challenge called Kid's Play at Flourishes for a chance to win the full release of their new stamps this month. The challenge is to be inspired by a kid's game from childhood and one of my favorites many moons ago was hop scotch. I used to chalk the walkway from our back porch and play during the long summer days.

I love this autumn leaf dp which I do not know where it came from...but I layered it on fresh asparagus and chocolate card stock from Gina K designs. I stamped images from Flourishes set Autumn Flourish and made my own hop scotch board. The ribbon is twill and hemp tied in a bow from Stampin' Up. I sponged the pieces with Memento desert sand and stamped a background stamp with Versafine Vintage sepia to speckle and the images with Memento Potter's Clay. Loving my fall cards, just wish it wasn't close to 100 degrees...can't wait for Fall weather.
