Sweet & Simple

Whew, where has this year gone?  I can't believe that we are already nearing the end of November!  I hope you had a wonderful day yesterday, celebrating Thanksgiving.  We had family over, and did the traditional cooking.  Smoked a brine prepped Turkey, candied yams, mashed potatoes, corn pudding, cranberry relish, stuffing, and of course, my yummy dinner rolls.  The dessert table was well stocked: pumpkin pie, pecan tart, and apple pie, all served with fresh whipped cream.
So, on to todays challenge from Sketch Frenzy Friday.  As usual, the sketch is wonderfully adaptive.  I sound like I'm tooting my own horn.  Only because I designed the sketch!  It has my signature colors: pink and brown.  Hope you get a chance to play along.  I know this time of year is spent shopping, visiting, baking, and decorating.  But if you get a chance to play along, please do.  We would love to see what you create!

a quick card I made

The card base is made from Midnight Muse card stock.  For the card front, I used a bright floral pattern from Gingham Garden DSP and matted it onto a piece of Melon Mambo card stock.  For the long banner pieces, I used scrap pieces from Gingham Garden & Sweater Weather DSPs.  I inked the sentiment in Midnight Muse classic ink, and then colored the blossoms with Melon Mambo  and Old Olive markers.  The sentiment piece is actually shimmer white card stock.  Just to give it a bit of shimmer.  I used the Labels Collection of dies to cut the shape.  I wrapped white taffeta ribbon around the top portion of the card, and tied a simple bow.  I wanted to add some more sparkle, so I added three random rhinestone jewels to the card front.
Please stop by the SFF site, and see what the rest of the design team has created! And play along with us!  We would love to see what you create!  A holiday card, a birthday card, or anything your heart desires.  {smile}
