AUTUMN IS IN THE AIR at Friday Sketchers #121
A very happy Friday to everyone!! Hey!! It's almost weekend and I know we all look forward to weekends!! I intend to make every one of them SPECIAL, too!!! I hope you are ending a very nice week and are prepared for a special weekend also, wherever you might be!!
Today at Friday Sketchers #121, we are being hosted by the marvelously creative and unbelievably talented Jeanette of Canada! She has given us a marvelous sketch and one which can be used in so many ways. Thank you so much, Jeanette...it was really alot of fun!!! I hope that you will come over and join with us this week so that you will be eligible for a great prize from Simon Says Stamp.
For my DT Sample Card I made an easel card using Bazzill for the base, all matting is PTI, and the DP is Recollections and PTI dots. All major panels were machine stitched. For the front of the card I stamped that darling little hÄnglar & stÄnglar harvest girl on Cryogen White and colored her with Copics. For the horizontal I used 1.5" Jute Ribbon Natural and Totally Twill Old Gold from Really Reasonable Ribbon. A set of autumn leaves dangles from the twill bow which is topped with an "Autumn Days" brad. To complete the scene, I used silk leaves and a couple of stickled pumpkins at the little girl's feet. For the floral treatment, I used flat flowers from Crafty Feeling centered with flower buttons, all resting on more silk leaves.
Since it is so difficult for me to photograph easel cards, I wanted you to see the base which again used the jute and twill ribbon horizontal, more buttons, and a sentiment on a Fancy Tag.
I hope you like my little creation and will be able to join us at Friday Sketchers this week. We would love to see your card using Jeanette's sketch!! Please visit each of the Sassy Sketcher Girls' blogs and let them know what you think of their magnificent creations!!!
