Tuesday Morning Sketches #221

Good morning!  Happy Tuesday.  Today my post is combining lots of fun things today.  First of all, Tuesday Morning Sketches and then I pulled in The Stamp Doctor to join the fun and then added one of my {other} favorite challenges, Kraft Journal.

So let me share my card and then I'll tell you all about it.


So my card is pretty true to the sketch that Jessi created for us.  Jessi is also sponsoring so I used one of her beautiful hand-crocheted mats in the newest color she's offering... Kraft.  Gorgeous!

I also needed to create a card for The Stamp Doctor so why not use the beautiful (G023) Dahlia Bouquet stamp.  Instead of coloring pink, I chose a more Autumn color palette and then vintaged it up a bit.  I love the hues oranges and rusts, sitting against this beautiful deep turquoise.  The paper I am using is from My Mind's Eye All Dolled Up collection.  All the colors are from Kraft Journal's color theme challenge this week.

I do hope you enjoy my card and that it inspires you to play along with Tuesday Morning Sketches or Kraft Journal (might as well put a plug in for their challenges, too) or perhaps even to shop a little at The Stamp Doctor where you can get great stamps at a great price, awesome papers, TSD exclusive dies and Spellbinders dies.  Doctor Mechele also has a wonderful selection of accessories to finish off your cards and scrapboook pages.

Have a great day!
