My Challenge and Sketch Blog

Here is where I can use any products and just do my own thing. I started out with just one sketch challenge and now I'm hooked. I wish there were more hours in the day.

Fall Arrangement - SSS75

Happy Fall Ya'll!!!

Here were are the beginning of Fall already. However, here in PA we are still having 90° weather. They say a cold front is coming in tonight and that the warm weather and then the cold change will help turn the leaves. We'll see!

Sorry this post in late but I was having a problem with a card that I wanted to post yesterday but never happened. So, this card got pushed to the side and took longer to complete than I expected.

This card was made for the sketch over at The Sweet Stop Challenge Blog. Korin has such fabulous sketches so if you have never played along and you need some inspiration, try this one.

This Digi image I used is called Fall Arrangement from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps. The problem I was having with this card was that all of my fall cards lately have all been green, orange and brown. I wanted to change it up a little so I added some purple. What do you think???

The image was printed three times, colored with Copic Markers, cut out and layered with foam tape for lots of Dimension.

The papers are from the Olivia paper pack, new from Close to my Heart. The Brads, ribbon and ribbon slide are all in the “Pear” Mini Medlies, also from CTMH. The purple papers are Gypsy CS. Now that it’s finished, I think these colors go great together.

I used Faux Flower Soft on the centers of the sunflowers and the purple flowers. And a little stickles in the stamen of the lily.

The Hand Stitching was done with matching Embroidery Floss.
