Wednesday Sketch Challenge at SplitCoastStampers

I just can't believe how fast these Wednesday's sneak up on me!!! I really do look forward to these challenges. I really enjoy having different layouts to use for my cards. I like this one and will probably use it again on another card. Most of the sketches I've done on Split Coast Stampers are ones I will and have used again. If you haven't done a sketch, give it a try. It keeps you thinking that's for sure. Plus you get to see all the other participants cards too!!! I love seeing what other people come up with. Some are extremely elaborate and others very simple. You get a big variety of skill levels there.

For my card I used the Autumn Harvest and Linen set. I also used the Leaves Awash wheel on glossy card stock and with Versa Mark. I heated clear embossing powder and then sponged the colors on.

The brads were gold and I heated them up and dipped them in embossing powerd. I had 3 colors, an orange, a green and a brown. I colored it all orange to start and then dipped one edge in brown and heated it and then another edge in green and heated that. Each one is different and should be!! I wasn't sure if I wanted ribbon in that large empty space or the brads and once I colored the brads I realized it was just what the card needed!

I stamped the pumpkin on watercolor paper and black Staz On ink. I used a blender pen and the Pumpkin Pie marker and colored in the pumpkin. I added a little Old Olive and a touch of Always Artichoke to the stem. I sponged the edges in Old Olive and layerd the pieces in black card stock. I assembled the card and VIOLA here it is!!

Thank you for stopping by,

I really like your card -- spongeing the colors on makes it look so soft. I haven't gotten to the sketch yet -- this one looks extremely versatile though. TFS!! Jeanne
