MFT Sketch Challenge: Happy Birthday




Hopefully, I didn't depart from the sketch too much!  I love paper piecing this sweet Pure Innocence figure and intended to center it over the Magical Mandala die.  In the interest of keeping the design less busy, I scooted the PI figure down and used the sentiment as the horizontal element.

Thanks for visiting,
Christine

Elegant Autumn Blessings


What a milestone for The Card Concept and what a gorgeous inspiration photo!  There certainly are some fabulous card-makers sharing projects based upon this oh-so-sweet photo.  Congrats on the 100th challenge!

Verve's Autumn Leaves stamps and dies (retired) take center stage on my card.  The frame was created by cutting a stitched rectangle around Papertrey Ink's Mix and Match Plaid die.  A scrap of gold card stock peeks through from underneath. Such fun to make....a little hard to photograph.

Thanks for stopping by,
Christine

Inky Paws: Newton Scoots By



I found a wonderful stack of papers at Tuesday Morning that has a clean, masculine feel.  Thought I would send this as a "hello" card to my son who is off at college.  I decided to let more of the pretty colors show by using a circular frame rather than a solid circle.

Atlantic Hearts Sketch 286




Michelle has done it again!  What a beautiful sketch she has created for us to enjoy this week on the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge blog.

I love to browse color challenges just as much as I love sketches.  I thought the color palette at Sunday Stamps was just gorgeous.  The soft aqua reminded me of those pretty caning jars, so that's where I started.  The tiny Verve leaves were cut from scraps of watercolored paper that I just knew I could get one more use from. What do you know?  The scraps were adequate for these little leaves.  That's why the tiniest scrap of paper never gets thrown away......


Thanks so much for visiting,

Aren't the color palette and the TGIF sketch just dreamy?  Such fun creating with pink and gray papers and adding the fun layers suggested by the sketch!
