Freshly Made Sketches 105

Wednesday, September 25, 2013

I'm so glad it's Wednesday!  I've only been back to work two days after my little vacation and I'm already exhausted!  It's been a busy couple of days, which is good because the day goes by fast, but it's been a busy couple of days which means I'm pooped by the end of the day!

Exhaustion aside, today is the new sketch from Freshly Made Sketches and this week Allisa is our hostess.  She's given us one of my favorite kinds of cards!  A square one!  With lots of other squares on it!  This should be right up your alley if you have a phobia about circles.  Jen Brum, I'm talking to you!  



I thought it was about time I created a fall-themed card so I found an appropriate color challenge at Just Us Girls and joined in.  I did a little rock-n-roll on the leaves from my all-time favorite leafy stamp set, French Foliage then fussy cut them out.  Layered together with a button is a good look for these leaves, especially when paired with this little tag.



I hope you have a chance to check out the challenge and inspiration from the Freshly Made Sketches design team this week.  Then ink up those stamps and join us!

Supplies:
Stamps:  French Foliage, French Script, Tiny Tags (SU)
Paper:  Kraft (Avery Elle); Early Espresso, Riding Hood Red, Very Vanilla
Ink:  Early Espresso, Riding Hood Red
Accessories:  Pierced Square STAX die (My Favorite Things); Early Espresso button (SU); baker's twine

So happy to see some favorite things on this one. I don't know who decided to retire French Foliage and the tags, but they are not my friend. Fabulous fall card!

This card is sooooo gorgeous. I love the "dainty" feel with that beautiful fragile-looking fall leaf. Gorgeous colors and details.
