I love MaryJo's sketch this week! It actually is one of those tried and true, basic layouts that I seem to go back to time and time again. So, I guess you could say that this week was an easy challenge! You can see MJ's sketch here.
For my sample this week, I used Kraft...it is just so perfect for Fall-themed cards, although it looks great all through the year! As you can see, that's the basic in this card. It has been paired with Not Quite Navy and Dusty Durango cardstock. Maybe not quite your traditional Fall colors, but don't you think that the Not Quite Navy gives the leaves and card a special little "punch" of color?
The leaves were simply stamped in Soft Suede and sponged in More Mustard, highlighted with some Dusty Durango and just a bit of Not Quite Navy. They have both been curled and manipulated to more closely resemble real leaves and then popped up on Dimensionals. Oh, and that Not Quite Navy panel has been textured in the Big Shot....not sure you can tell!
Thanks for stopping by today....hope you enjoyed your visit!
