Good to the Last Drop, TSSC87

I am going to try to be better about posting earlier on challenges. This card was made for Mary Jo's Monday Lunchtime sketch challenge 87. This is one of the Sugar Nellies that came in the Fall set. It is the first "boy" stamp that I have bought and I really like it, I usually go right for the girls.
The DP on this card was from a sheet that I saw at my LSS and loved the non-traditional Fall colors and the sparkle on it. Little did I know that it would be so hard to match to any other colors. I think I came close but it's not perfect like I like it to be. I am sure I'll try again with the scraps I have. I added Stickles to my leaves to tie it in to the DP leaves. I love my cards to sparkle whenever possible!

Paper: SU Cranberry Crisp, Sage Shadow, Papertrey White, DP Best Creations
