Tuesday Morning Sketches #575

 Hello and thank you for stopping by my blog.  I do appreciate your visit.  The latest sketch is up at Tuesday Morning Sketches.  It's a real basic sketch with some super basic elements.

Basic... yet I struggled.  I wasn't feeling very creative the entire weekend!  But my daughter and I did some cleaning and Fall decorating.  We want to do more!  We get 2 whole months of these lovely colors so I really want to soak it all in.

Anyway, talk about Fall colors.  I am loving this card!  Check it out....

I really did struggle with what I wanted to do for this card.  I knew I wanted to play with the Concord & 9th Wreath Turnabout stamp set.  It is bigger than the element on the card but I thought why not, I get a larger circle element and I've got the sprinkles at the bottom all in one with this wreath.  The colors are just stunning - this is just going to happen when you use gradient colors like I did - these came in a 4 pack from Altenew.  Then with a couple of small stamps in the same set I added a touch of brown and green.  I then used the Hello Darling stamp set from Simon Says Stamp and I added some colors from Hero Arts.  The vertical strips are Lemon Tart and Summer Sunrise from Papertrey Ink and using some some stamps in the Hello Darling set, I added some interest to them by stamping a random pattern of leaves and creating a sort of plaid effect.  

I do hope you like this card and that it inspires you to look at what you've got differently.  This set is really set for Spring - even some sentiments are all about Spring.  But by changing the colors and layering up - I've got a lovely Fall mini-garden.

Now head on over to the TMS blog and join us!
