Sketch Challenge 255

I submitted this card for the SC255. This card reminds me of my Grandma Little's kitchen when she lived in Arkansas. Very warm and country. I love the wood paper (Autumn Meadows DSP). The ribbon and the copper hardware were some I found in my accessories drawer, but it really made a difference in the look of the card.

The main image is from the Country Morning stamp set, which is one of our Level 1 Hostess sets. A qualifying workshop means this set is free!

Sketch challenges are a great way to try something different on your cards. I don't normally use this many layers, but it was fun to make this all work together and it turned out great!

Here is the sketch.....try it!

Color Challenge 245

Here is my submission for the Color Combo challenge #245 on SCS which you can find out more about HERE.
This combo uses Always Artichoke, Chocolate Chip, and Real Red. While this is a perfect color combo for Christmas, I am just not ready for that yet!!
I used the Seasons of Friendship stamp set, along with a sentiment from the Hope Happens set. The main image panel is popped up on dimensionals for depth. And I love the yummy Chocolate Chip grosgrain ribbon!
