Autumn Days Wednesday Sketch Challenge

It's Wednesday again and that means it's time for this weeks Sketch Challenge over at SplitCoastStampers.

I do like the layout of this weeks challenge but I don't like what I did with it.

As I started out with my colors I was happy. I decided to use Cajun Craze for the base of the card. I had found some DP that is retired but it was fall looking and it went with the Cajun Craze. Though I think the color on the DP is Really Rust.

Anyway, I got all of my layers on and I liked what I saw.
Next I went to my Big Kick with my oval Nestabilities and cut out the oval and the scalloped oval.

Back at my worktable I colored on the rubber with markers. Direct to Rubber technique. After I stamped the image on the oval I added the wheat on the left side. I stamped that in More Mustard and then I thumped on some Sahara Sand and Cajun Craze. I stamped that on and then sponged the edges with Cajun Craze. I assembled the card and was NOT thrilled with it at all. Turning it like that sort of boxed me in with it. I didn't have any room for verbiage, ribbons or anything else. I think I will give this sketch another try next week and see if I can't improve on it. I don't think I'll be changing the orientation though. I'll just keep it the way it is and go from there.
So I show you that all of my cards are not winners!
Play with this layout if you have time. It was a pretty simple one. See if you can come up with something fun by turning it. Maybe I was just too tired to think about it!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,

This is a gorgeous fall card! The more I see of this set the more I think I need it LOL! I also left comments on your glass jar with the bats and your little Christmas girl card. Very nice blog!
