OWH Stars and Stamps Wednesday Challenge and Sketch #75

Good Wednesday afternoon -- I decided to combine Sunday's Sketch #75 Challenge with today's challenge.   I didn't get a chance until today to do the Sunday Challenge - I was busy making cards for a local dog shelter  -- another cause that is near and dear to my heart.  I made the Fall card -- without the bow and replacing it with a leaf embellishment.  The 2nd card follows the sketch with the ribbon and bow but is isn't really  fall -- not sure where it is in the spectrum of the seasons, more summer?


I like this sketch -- easy to do although I ended up making more scraps because I didn't have the colors in my scrap bin that I wanted to work with, so I'll just have to make more of these cards using these paper scraps.  (smile)

The leaf paper for the Fall card is from The Paper Loft - Autumn Blaze, the orange and green are from cardstock scraps.  The sentiment is from Impression Obsession, Shara Phelps Collection.  The leaf sticker is from EKSuccess.

The 2nd cards I used paper from K&Company, Tim Coffey.  The sentiment is from Clearartstamps.

Thanks for stopping in and taking a peek.   This weekend's Independence Day Virtual Pary sounds like a lot of fun.  Hope your planning to join the fun!?!  Wishing you a good rest of the week.

Warm regards,

Great idea to combine the sketch and the MWT! Such pretty gold details on the leaf, really draws your eye.
