Celebrating FMS 13

Good morning, Friends! I hope you are all having a super weekend! It looks to be another fine day around here! I love football Sundays! There is always something to watch! Nick's soccer game didn't go the way we would have liked. But the boys played very well! And Nick played great, too! Couldn't tell he was on crutches just a few days ago - lol! They are always so much fun to watch!

Today's card is for the challenge at Freshly Made Sketches. They are celebrating their one year anniversary and so the challenge is to pick a past sketch and use it for your creation. Well, that was really hard for me as they have SO many wonderful sketches to choose from!! I picked FMS 13. I also decided NOT to use my Googly Ghouls set - lol! Although you will be seeing a few more cards done with that set. So I picked another favorite set, Perfectly Preserved! This set is perfect for fall and the colors in the Orchard Harvest designer paper is perfect for fall, too! This is a very simple card. I punched two strips of Early Espresso card stock with the dotted ribbon scallop punch and adhered them to the back of a piece of Orchard Harvest designer paper. This is adhered to a card base of Cajun Craze. Then I stamped the ears of corn from Perfectly Preserved onto Very Vanilla using Lucky Limeade, Cajun Craze and More Mustard markers. Then I cut them out using the Cannery framelits dies. The two outer ears are adhered to the card and the middle one is popped up. Then I stamped the greeting from Teeny Tiny Wishes in Early Espresso onto Very Vanilla and punched it out with the Word Window punch and popped it up onto a piece of Very Vanilla that was punched with the Modern Label punch. This is adhered to the card. I added two rhinestones to finish it off! Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!

  1. Perfect for fall is right! I've had my share of yummy corn on the cob this year, so I could really appreciate a card like this! Fantastic use of the colors! Thanks for joining our anniversary challenge at Freshly Made Sketches!

  2. This is just fall perfection! Love the clean lines and your use of the sketch. Glad you joined us for this special week at FMS!

  3. I love those little ears of corn, all in a row - so sweet and perfect for fall. Thanks for joining us at FMS!

  4. I will say I'm a bit surprised to not see the googlies. :) I love what you've been doing with them. This is just as awesome though. I had no idea what to do with the corn stamp but you totally made it work on this one. Thanks for playing with us at Freshly Made Sketches.
