Sketch Splendor

Hi friends!  Happy Friday!  It's time for another Viva la Verve! sketch and this week I'm the hostess with the mostest.  Head on over to the Viva la Verve! forum to play along with us!

My card uses an autumn favorite of mine, Autumn Splendor   I stuck with the same papers I had on my desk.  Just love soft sky for any season, but it seems so perfect with autumn colors.  I made the wheat stamps my focal piece, then used a primitive star die cut, combined with a Flag It die cut to hold my sentiment.  The two cross pieces are stamped tone on tone with the leaves from the Autumn Splendor set.  With the rust paper, I ran it through my paper crimper then sanded over it to get the fun stripes.  The background piece is embossed with that Hexagons SU! folder I love and I added in a Flourished Trim Die die cut and some liquid pearls and wooden stars to finish off.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  I hope you have a fabulous weekend!

  8. Hi Julee,
    I am sitting down for some Sunday afternoon crafting time and have a sentiment I'd like to see in a rubber stamp. Each fall, I package some of those yummy candy pumpkins and tie on a little message comparing a pumpkin to a Christian. It's something I've seen in email and floating around on the internet. Not sure if there are copyright issues involved, but if not, I love to have a "stamp able" version of this sentiment!
