My Mind's Eye Fall sketch

I've become a real fan of My Mind's Eye design papers.  Until recently I didn't have access to them, but Archiver's is carrying them now, and I make a bee-line to that area every time I can get there.  At the My Mind's Eye Blog, there's a challenge and the winner gets to choose the collection of her choice!  What could be better?!  Here is the sketch:

And here is my very loose interpretation of it, using all papers from their Stella & Rose "Mabel" pad - I just couldn't choose which ones to use, so I used most of the autumnal colors from it:

MME Fall Sketch

supplies: cream card base, dps from Mabel 6 x 6 pad, PSX stamp #G-3322 (from 2002), inked with spiced marmalade, fired brick, tea dye and vintage photo distress inks and detailed with markers, hand-dyed seam binding (spiced marmalade), twine, large orange and small brown buttons, lace

And since there's a nice selection of ribbon, lace, and twine here, I'd also like to enter this into Really Reasonable Ribbon's Fun 4 Fall challenge.
