MMSC24 & C4C8

i made this for the midnight madness sketch challenge....havent done this one in a while...
the paper is bazzil, little yellow bicylce:  brown leaves; SEI moravia (my fav); reminise wood grain (?) its hard to see...its under the sentiment; water color paper
the ink is stazon on olive green and i used water color pencils from stampin up with a blending stump
the flower is from heidi grace:printed flowers
the brad is spare parts form hobby lobby and the gems are from micheals
the punch is from martha stewart:  doily and i just cut it up to make it fit
stamp set is called harvest home from stampin up
i would have loved to have used some of sue's wood grains here...but it was too late to order ...i would not have received it in time...
here is the link to the challenge :
