BC 232 and 233

Happy Friday! Before I share my card for the Blogger's Challenge today I'd like to give a Birthday Shout Out to Anna Wight (Sweet Miss Daisy)who is celebrating her birthday today. Why not pop on over to her wonderful blog and leave her some Birthday Wishes. - Have a wonderful day Anna!

Okay so last week the BC challenge was a "Sketch" challenge and due to computer issues I wasn't able to get a card posted. Which by the way I'm still using the old one as the new one has not gotten in yet.
I hate missing the challenges so I decided to combine the two for this weeks challenge "Falling For You." Lisa
left the theme open to Interpretation. Fall is one of my two favorite seasons (Spring being the other)so it's no surprise that I created a Fall themed card for this weeks challenge.

Here is the sketch from last week:
I was a bit "intimidated" by this sketch at first. Then I remembered that I had a wonderful set of (Swirls/Flourishes) in my stash and from there this card was created.




I even finished it off on the inside:



Now it's your turn to give this challenge a try. You can do so by using the Mr. Linky feature.


So here is what I used for my card:
Stamps: Inkadinkado Fall Mini Asst. - Purchased at a JoAnn's
Swirls/Flourishes-Technique Tuesday.
Inside Sentiment: Serendipity Stamps
Card Stock: Bazzill Textured and SU Very Vanilla
Patterned Paper: WeRMemoryKeepers-Maple Grove line
Baker's Twine/The Paper Studio
Gems: Me and My Big Ideas
Ink:Soft Suede (SU) and VersaMark
Embossing Powder: Terra Cotta Tapestry-PSX (No longer in Business)

Have a great weekend. - Lately I've become interested in Photography and even though I don't own a Fancy Camera I'm still having fun with my Point/Shoot. If you'd like to check out some of my work. Head on over to my other blog. There is a link at the top of the page and also on my sidebar.

This is gorgeous! I love the clean design and gorgeous colors. Our sky here was a color similar to this blue today. I love that color and the only time you can see it is this time of year. Beautiful work!
