Diva Coffee Break Design Sketch #147

DSCF5478

 

I have to tell you, I am REALLY enjoying the sketches that Julie makes up for us Divas to use!  I look forward to them!  It is so helpful to have a sketch to get you started when your mojo is hiding somewhere!

 

So here is the Diva Coffee Break Designs  sketch for this week:

DCBD147

I needed a thank you card for a good friend who is also a customer (a very good customer), and I wanted to step it up a little, so this was a perfect sketch to use for my fall "grateful for you" card:

I stamped the Autumn Harvest images in Stazon on watercolor paper, colored them with Earth Elements reinkers and my aquapainter, then cut them out and popped them up on a textured Always Artichoke panel that was stamped with the leaf image, the little dot from Itty Bitty Backgrounds and then sponged.  What a mouthful!  The panel was then mounted on a piece of distressed-edge Chocolate Chip cardstock and embellished with some twill & a corduroy button.  The sentiments, from Falling Leaves, were stamped on Thoroughly Modern DP and Sahara Sand; vintage brads finish it off.  It's a side-fold card, so that makes it a bit unique, too!  Thanks for visiting today and be sure to check out what the other Divas have designed!  You can play too!  There is a Mr Linky at the DCBD blog and we would love to have you share your creation with us!

Oh, honey, baby, sweetie! This is so luscious and lovely: I'm going to have to go light a pumpkin spice candle! So glowy and magical! It reminds me... of a VERY lovely friendship card that came into the mail today...{I'm SO happy: I love it, LeAnne!} You are such a MAJOR talent and I'm always inspired by your creations!

I don't know why but I can only see the left half of your card here. Either way, I know it is beautiful because I saw the entire thing in all it's glory on our Diva blog! Great job with the sketch and especially your perfect shading of those pumpkins!
