I'AM SO october card kit

this month's card kit from artful delight is full of fall colors and i love it.
we even got two stamp sets in this one, wohoo! 
i am showing you the mini mess i made making my card at the end.... hard to choose what paper i wanted to use but i ended up using this floral from little yellow bicycle called fall floral. love the rich colors of it.

I'm Thankful
3" x 4.5"
the base of the card is from bazzill and i also love that mustard color, actual name is "golden coins". the bottom part looks a bit crooked in the pic but i give you my word is not like that in real person. when i shoot in macro mode, even the tiny details get exaggerated, lol

i added some zig zags with my sewing machine, of course. the wooden elements are from this oct kit too. i inked them a bit with brown ink.
the mesh is super cool. it is not a common one. the texture is rough but so neat. i added a piece of it as you can see. :)

with this month's sketch in mind, :D, i added a piece of the same cardstock (i used the back side of it) and stamped one of the sentiments from the lawn fawn stamp set incluced in the kit. the other stamp i was telling you in the beginning it is from paper smooches. i stitched the sides. 

hope you give a chance to our monthly challenge. this is the sketch you need to follow and the link to artful delight.

i did not make a video of the contents this month because no one is really watching them and it is not worthy all the time i put into it. but that is ok. here is a pic of it.
if you win the challenge you also win a kit of your choice. you will be really happy with any kit you choose: scrapbooking or card.
