This is the time of year for seasonal changes and we want you to show us your cards inspired by those. At SUO Challenges, spring fever has definitely set in. But we know that many of you live in the Southern Hemisphere and we want to see your beautiful fall cards.
When I got to go to Cindy Elam’s house a couple of weeks ago, one of the most fun things we did was prepare for this challenge. We used the same sketch to create our cards. She chose spring and I chose fall. Here are the cards side-by-side. Fun, huh??!!
I started by embossing a Crumb Cake panel with Cindy’s Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder. So pretty! With that lovely background I wanted to keep the rest pretty clean so I went to Cindy’s punch rack and started punching out flowers to layer. Aren’t they pretty together? All I did was sponge the layers of the flower and the edges of the Crumb Cake panels. I chose this lovely sentiment from the Sale-a-bration set Elementary Elegance. Finally, the bow was the one I made for the bow tutorial we created. I thought this had a bit of a fall feel with the color choices, especially when put next to Cindy’s amazing spring card! This sketch was one Cindy had saved and I really like both results with it.
I hope you will be able to join us at SUO Challenges with this fun theme! The design team has created some fabulous cards for inspiration so make sure you drop by to see them.
I will be back tomorrow for another Freshly Made Sketches Challenge. Make sure you check back in because it is a cool sketch…unlike any that I have used before! Until then, have a great day and thanks for stopping in.
