Sketchy Monday

Happy Monday everyone!  I hope you had a great weekend.  Yesterday was a simply perfect day weather-wise here...I hope it was as nice where ever you are!  Today I want to share this month's inspiration sketch with you:

September's Inspiration Sketch
Here is an Autumn-themed project I put together based on the sketch:

Thank you card featuring the Banner Greetings Hosetess set (129714) and Sweater Weather DSP (132184)
I so love Fall colours and the Sweater Weather DSP has some beautiful, rich shades and warm, cozy patterns. 

Inside view with leaves die cut with the Autumn Accents Bigz die.

Here is what I used to put this card together:
  • I embossed the Chocolate Chip background layer with the Woodgrain TIEF (127821).
  • I layered the plaid-patterned DSP on Crushed Curry card stock.
  • I used a piece of  1-1/4" Burlap ribbon (132140) for my pennant and adhered it with Sticky Strip.
  • I die cut the leaf from Sweater Weather DSP using the Autumn Accents Bigz die (127812).
  • The fuzzy-looking twine with which I threaded my button is  from the Simply Created Banner Kit.  I pulled apart some of the thick twine I had left over and used it to thread my button...I like the shabby softness it provides.
  • The sentiment is from the Banner Greetings Hostess set and is stamped in Cajun Craze ink.
If you haven't tried creating from a sketch before give it a whirl.  It really is a wonderful way to get your creative Mojo working!


  1. This is really pretty. I love the fall colors and the weather. It is so hot here right now.

  2. Terrific fall card! I love the burlap and jute twine in the button. I'm definitely ready for fall.
