Caardvark's TiffanyDoodles September Challenge - Sketch by Heidi Van Laar!

My October Card, for Caardvark's September Challenge!
Caardvark's is back up and running with 2 challenges per month. The current challenge, which is sponsored by TiffanyDoodles is to use one of two sketches made by DT member Heidi Van Laar.  I chose the first one, which looks like this:

Heidi Van Laar's First Sketch

To see the other sketch, a 'scrapling', and to learn how to play along, visit the Caardvark's site here:  Caardvark's

This card was also inspired by the current blog hop at the Hero Arts Flickr site.  I saw so many fun, fall, creations, I just had to get playing!  Thanks Hero Arts girls!!!  And, since it is a Fall card, I am submitting it into this month's Hero Arts Challenge, the 'Everything Autumn' Challenge'

So!  There you have it!  Two challenges, inspired by the Hero Arts Flickr site!
