Atlantic Hearts Sketch #19

Happy Labour Day, folks!

The Atlantic Hearts Sketch challenge has a new design for you to try. This one was created by Carrie Wright, one of our DT members.
Those cascading elements down the left side reminded me of the falling leaves I've been seeing the past few days...autumn already! I am NOT quite ready for the change of season, so I searched the web for some summery colour challenge combinations.

Here's a version using colours from the Color Throwdown, interpreted with Close to My Heart colours:
Hollyhock, Sunset, Blush, Sweet Leaf and Buttercup

I made a second version using inspiration from the Colour Q challenge #204:

Similar Color My Heart shades are:
Gypsy, Lagoon, Sorbet and Pear

The stamp set is a retired one from Close to My Heart, with corresponding leaf shapes cut using the Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge. The sentiment stamp comes from Paper Wishes. The embossing folder is by Cuttlebug. Here's the inside of the second card:
So, which version do you prefer?

More inspiration for this sketch will be found on the Atlantic Hearts blog on Wednesday of this week. Then you have until Sunday night to show us your interpretation. Lots of scope with this design! Hope you play along!

I'm entering this these cards in the following challenges: 
Happy crafting,
