Fall Leaves: CCMC 319

This week Create with Connie and Mary have a great sketch challenge for us; it's rather simple which allows for a wide variety of interpretations!

I decided to go with a large leaf as my focal inage; I diecut it from Pistachio Pudding (yes, really!) then began adding colors with Sponge Daubers and various inks.  I also colored the smaller leaf the same way but I kept to fewer colors!  I used a Neutrals Button in Early Espresso and covered the center with Gold Glimmer Paper punched out with a 1/2" Circle Punch.  A length of Tangelo Twist ribbon and a dash of Gold Sequin trim are final touches.  I didn't add a sentiment to the card before this photograph but did later:  "thankful" from the Good Greetings set (seen below).

And here's the same card with the thankful greeting from the special hostess Good Greetings set:

Stamps:  Good Greetings
Inks:  Crushed Curry, Tangelo Twist, Cajun Craze, Old Olive, Mossy Meadow 
Paper:  Old Olive, Tangelo Twist, Old Olive, Pistachio Pudding cardstocks.  Gold Glimmer Paper
Accessories:  Lg. Neutrals Button (Early Espresso), Tangelo Twist Stitched Satin Ribbon, Gold Sequin Trim, 1/2" Circle Punch.

Here is the sketch for this week:
Super Simple and so versatile!  You can see from the Design Team's cards that we each used different images as the focal point on our cards, so put your thinking cap on and come up with your own original using this sketch!  Make it yours!  The guidelines are on the Create with Connie and Mary's website as are the other Design Team's cards!  We can't wait to see what you do with the sketch! 

Hope you enjoyed!  Thanks for visiting today!

Gorgeous card, Margaret! I love the way you colored the leaf! The gold sequins look great on everything, don't you think? Thanks for inspiring!

I never would have guessed that was Pistachio Pudding under those gorgeous colors! That maple leaf looks almost real. Beautiful!

Dear Margret,
thanks for visiting my Blog and your nice comment. I'll try to find out, how to install the translator.

Dear Margaret,
it was so quick and easy to install the translate button. I did it. :-)
