Sketch Challenge

Each month the jj design team is given a sketch challenge. This was the first challenge I participated in and I've got a bunch of cards to share this week, using the same layout. I loved this sketch and found that I had lots of ideas for images that would work well in this format.

My first card showcases some of justjohanna's new Harvest images, that were released before Thanksgiving. I adore this leaf wreath image and it was a perfect fit for the circle section of the card. I'm also partial to the sentiment, which not only says thanks but also expresses gratitude.

My card base is SU!'s Always Artichoke. Top section is the backside of some Crate paper and the bottom section is SU!'s More Mustard. The large Artichoke circle at the top was cut out using my handy dandy Coluzzle cutting system, which BTW I can't stand! LOL! It's so difficult to use!! OK, back to the card...The wreath was colored with Copics, cut out, and adhered (after attaching one lovely piece of chocolate brown taffeta ribbon) with dimensional tape to the larger circle. The sentiment has been colored and attached to two layers of color coordinating cardstock. Lastly, the tiny acorn was added to the edge of the sentiment...a lovely Fall embellishment!

Why not try out this layout and leave me a comment with a link back to your site...would love to share in your creations!

Happy Stamping!
