Grateful Autumn Splendour water colour

Happy Friday!

When I saw this great sketch #144 from N@ Ali , I knew right away what I wanted to create!  I actually had a few ideas, so don't be surprised to see a second cup!
I have had a lot of fun water colouring sheets filled with Fall colours and die cutting with this new SSS Fall Wreath Leaves die.  I know that I want to make lots of cards for Thanksgiving, so I have cut out hundreds of these tiny gems.  The sketch presented a perfect layout for them and I finally ordered some Winnie and Walter goodies and was very excited to use this beautiful Grateful word die cut from The Big, the Bold and Blessings Cutaways.
The little leaves are arranged on a shimmery golden vellum paper and the Grateful Cutaway is cut from gold foil cardstock.  Just as easy as can be...
off to make a dozen or so more!
