Hi everyone! Hope you're having a great Sunday... :) This card was created using the Fall-to Layout #86 sketch Natasha posted on Friday. I wanted to mix things up a bit, so I used rhinestones and stars for the circle elements on the sketch... I was also toying with the idea of using my Corner Chomp on the left corner because I thought that space looked a little lonely, but after staring at it for a few minutes, I decided to leave it as is. :)
Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
Stamps - Star Prints, Signature Greetings

Here's this week's sketch. I designed it a few days ago. Thursday came around and I hadn't made my sample yet. I actually haven't done much of anything in the creative department this week. I made it my goal to get it done. I have to say, I ended up being so inspired, I made two! I used circles, feel free to use flowers, butterflies, hearts, stars, or anything else! For my circles, I used the 4 smallest circle nestabilities, as well as a 1/2'' circle punch and a 3/4'' circle punch. My circle placement deviated a bit from the sketch. The idea is to have around six elements that overlap in a vertical line.
Here's my first card, why yes, I am still on a Haiku kick. (I wish I could've made that into a Haiku, ha!) I just love the So Saffron, Tango Tangerine, More Mustard, and Old Olive colour combination! This paper may have retired a year ago, but I think it's still pretty fresh!
Since I had all sorts of patterned paper out and about, I put together another card. This time I used Urban Oasis. It was nice to bring out the Baja Breeze again! I quite like this paper's colour combination too!

Here's my card based on the sketch directly. I used the colours in the Haiku paper as my inspiration. Now that it's available at a clearance price, I ordered 5 packs... so I feel like I can use more of my stash. This was one of my all time favorite paper packs!
The second card is basically a copy of Carrie's card using some different colours. Once again I used the colours from the Thoroughly Modern paper as a starting point. I ended up substituting Soft Suede with Basic Grey, and Bermuda Bay with Taken with Teal. I am still a little mournful towards losing Taken with Teal. Considering turquoise is such an in colour this year and Bermuda Bay isn't sticking around, I was a little taken aback at that particular decision! Oh well, hopefully there will still be some paper around for my upcoming stamp club order!
For the ribbon and bow, I wrapped a piece of double sided tape around where I intended to place the bow. I gathered it in so it would look like the bow actually originated from that point. I made the bow on my plastic canvas version of the bow-easy, then stuck it on. So much easier than figuring out the right lengths and worrying about which way the bow ends up!

I've also grouped the sketches, up to FTL 81 in four documents. Sorry, I couldn't figure out how to actually export a 4-page document with the software I have. Hopefully this is an acceptable alternative! *Amendment* Due to the awesomeness of others in the crafting community, Amy has grouped these into a single .pdf. Woot! It should be here soon. If that doesn't work, you can also try here.
