IB167 Hello Fall

Hi everyone!  It's Thursday and that means a new Inspired By!  Here are our two choices this week, aren't they gorgeous?


Great sketch as well!!!

My stampin' mojo has gone missing lately, and I feel like I struggled a bit with my card today; the inspiration photos are gorgeous, I just haven't been focused enough, I guess!  Anyway, I actually used the FMS sketch this week but my foliage is so "lush" that it's hard to see, so I'll not enter it,   but my friends said I should enter it!!!  So here we go:

And here's the FMS sketch:

I used the top photo as my inspiration, diecutting three woodgrain squares, then sponging some white craft ink, then Seaside Spray on them to tone them down a little.  I used Forever Flourishing dies for the greenery, sponging the Sage Shadow ones with some white craft ink as well, then adding some Evening Evergreen ones poking out from behind.  The yellow berries are from the Poinsettia dies, and I added some Metallic pearls and a wee bit of Lost Lagoon ribbon to "tie" it all together:

A sentiment from my trusty Wreath for All Seasons from Papertrey provided my sentiment.  The main panel is Naturals White, diecut with a Wonky Stitched die and it was mounted on an Early Espresso card base:

I hope you'll find some inspiration in either of these photos, or the sketch, or both!  Hope to see you in the Inspired By gallery with whatever you create!  Thanks for popping in today!  

I am pretty sure I forgot to post this picture -- the family went to a monster truck race...that thing IS a monster!  Oh, and she got her boot off Monday!  YAY!

Enjoy your day and be blessed!

I think you should have added your card to FMS, LeAnne - if I can see their Sketch, I'm sure they would!
Loving your sprigs of all these yummy greens - gorgeous card!

I'd enter the card too! Let FMS be the judge, not! We are so hard on ourselves, aren't we? Cass have one calf tanned and the other not? Her next goal will be to drive one of those!

I think your foliage is fabulous and you should definitely enter it at FMS! Beautiful card! Emma loves those crazy monster trucks too! So glad the boot is gone!

I love this - a perfect take on that inspiration photo - I love both of those this week! Glad you linked up at FMS - I think it works their sketch brilliantly too! Congratulations to Cassidy on being able to ditch the boot at last - that must feel great!

What a delightful bouquet of leaves and berries. I love the color scheme and these three woodgrain panels. Thanks so much for playing along with us at Freshly Made Sketches this week.
