SFF 081911

Good Friday morning, Friends! Are you ready for the weekend? I am!! We are heading out this afternoon for Colorado Springs for a soccer tournament. The tournament takes place at the Air Force Academy. It is SO beautiful there! And we are all ready to get out of town! But before that happens I want to make sure you all know about the great sketch challenge from the team at Sketch Frenzy Friday! Check out the sketch that Angela Walters created:

And here is what I created using the sketch:

I rather like this one! To be honest, when I first saw the sketch, I wasn't sure what I could do with it. But then it came to me! Falling leaves! I started with my main panel. I stamped the background with the A to Z stamp in Pear Pizzazz on Confetti Cream card stock. I roughed up the edges with the distressing tool and then sponged Pear Pizzazz ink all the way around.  I stamped the greeting from Perfectly Penned in Cajun Craze and added two gold brads. This is glued to a piece of More Mustard. Then I used my piercer and poked holes around the main panel. This is popped up onto a Cajun Craze card base. I stamped the leaf image from Autumn Splendor three times on scrap Confetti Cream card stock in Pear Pizzazz, Cajun Craze, and More Mustard and cut them out. These are popped up on the front of the card. 

And there you have it! Click 'here' to go to Jennifer's blog and see her creation! I hope that you will find some time this week to play along with our sketch challenge. I always love to see what you all come up with! I really do get inspired, too! Be sure to upload your creation at the Sketch Frenzy Friday blog! Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!
