2S4U is Just Rite!

Happy Saturday everyone! I have been drooling over this weeks 2S4U sketch challenge all week and was determined to get this in by tonight's deadline. Why? Well first of all I LOVE Kazan's sketch. I had this idea in my head as soon as I saw the layout. And second, the challenge prize up for grabs is a $100 gift certificate to Just Rite Stamps!!! I've been seeing soo many gorgeous cards done with these stamps lately and they just look so versatile and fun that I NEED to try them :0) So why not try to get them for free!



I made the little center pumpkin by folding punched scalloped circles in half and gluing them together to give the 3-D effect. The little stem and leaf was ripped off some of my fake fall foliage I had laying around :0). The chipboard circle actually started out as black and white. I used a sponge and Ranger distress ink to turn it brown and better coordinate with the gorgeous Coffey background papers.

I decided to tie this card in with the Moxie Fab Challenge by adding a ruffled ribbon border above and below the center panel. I used a wire ribbon and just slid the ribbon on one side to create the ruffles. The ribbon is a nice copper brown and really shimmers IRL. Finally I added some 1/2 pearls in a nice coppery brown color to tie the panel and sentiment together.



I couldn't decide which picture I liked better so I posted both. I asked my oldest and he wasn't much help :0) I like the background in the first one, but I think elements of the card stand out better in the second one. Which do you prefer?


Well
, hope the rest of your weekend is Just Right !!

  1. Gorgeous card! I love how you created a 3-D pumpkin. I like the first picture better just because of the better lighting. I've ripped leaves and flowers off of silk flowers for cards too. ;)
