From Our House to Yours

Today's SCS challenge was to use a pop of color with a neutral.  While listening to the Phillies win (and almost lose) their ball game last night, I was playing around with a CHF image from their Night Before Christmas set.  I had also seen this lovely creation by Susan and knew I could combine my image and her style to make a nice card.  It also uses a loose interpretation of the the Fall to Layout #64 sketch as well!

I would have liked to have had the bow over a tiny little bit, but I made a one-hole bow, and once you punch that hole, you're kind of committed!  But once I put the sentiment on, it balanced it a bit!  Thanks for visiting today!

  1. Oh, goodness! LeAnne, this is darling! Kinda reminds me of Thomas Kinkade and all of that magic! Very beautifully done! Gosh, the neutral and POP of color never ceases to delight! Looks like you hit "the zone!" I'm sure the Philly's win helped, too!

  3. I love how you did this card. I guess you could have put the image on the other side of the bow.
