Paper Pretties Monday

Good Morning!  I hope the weekend was what you wanted it to be.  I had an enjoyable one although yesterday I wasn't feeling the best and layed pretty low.  Not how I want to be spending my stamping Sundays.  Oh well - guess I just needed the down time.   The only card I managed to get done was the one I have to share with you today.

It's time for a new Paper Pretties digi challenge.  This is Swingin into Fall Bear and I {heart} him!


This week's challenge is Fall Inspired.

I pulled out some old papers from Papertrey Ink and used the colors from it to pull the rest of the card together for me.  I feels a bit Christmas-y but I still am pleased with how it turned out.

Supplies:
Images: Swingin' Into Fall Bear set

Card stock: Neenah Milled Ivory, Ruby Red, Old Olive
Paper: First Fruits collection (PTI)
Copics: C8, E29, E33, E34, E37, E53, G28, R11, R29, Y17, YR16, YR23
Embellishments: Pure Poppy satin ribbon (PTI), brads (Bazzill)
Tools: SCAL, Cricut

I also visited my friends at Sweet Sketch Wednesday.  I haven't played along much since I left the design team, but I do think about Arlana and her sweet sisters and team often.  Arlana's sketch was perfect for this card.

Thank you so much for visiting me today.  It's always so nice to have you drop by.
