CCMC 265

Good morning, Friends! The Create with Connie and Mary team have a sketch challenge for us this week! Check it out!

What a fantastic sketch! Love that you can use scraps of designer paper for this! Here's what I came up with!

My card came together fairly quick as I had these two leaves stamped and cut out and just laying on my table waiting to be used! So that was my starting point! Here are the card details:

  • Card base is Sahara Sand
  • On a layer of Sahara Sand stamp the splotches from Gorgeous Grunge using Sahara Sand ink then run through the Big Shot using the Pretty Print embossing folder and adhere to card base
  • Cut three panels of Sweater Weather designer paper and pop up onto card
  • Stamp leaves from Wonderfall in Tangerine Tango and Crushed Curry onto Very Vanilla card stock, cut out and pop up onto card
  • Stamp greeting from Four You in Chocolate Chip onto a Very Vanilla strip, flag the end and adhere to card
  • Tie a bow on the back side of a Naturals button using linen thread and adhere to card
Pretty simple and a card that gets me thinking of fall! Be sure to see what the other wonderful designers did with this great sketch at the Create with Connie and Mary site! So much inspiration!!

  1. Love your color scheme.. it does help get me in the mood for fall! I really like that Pretty Print background with the composition. I never though about tying my bow on the back of the button but it's a great look! hmm, why didn't I think of that! Sleek, colorful and elegant card!

  2. Love the colors. Definitely fall, with a hint of crisp morning blue sky. Gets my brain thinking!

  3. Love it, Deb! I love your mixtures of texture and splatter with the fall paper! Fantastic card!

  4. Gorgeous card! I see fall when I look at this card! Great job!!
