Sketches, Sketches, Everywhere

If you are like me, you are a sucker for sketch challenges and it does not help that everyone has a sketch on their blog for you to try! There is always a sketch I am meaning to work on. Today I decided to pick a color scheme and create similar looking cards using four different sketches. The colors I used were: Really Rust, Chocolate Chip, Only Orange, Very Vanilla, and Ruby Red. Hope you like my little taste of fall. Sorry I have been MIA the past couple days, I have been trying to catch up on life . . . you know, the boring stuff like laundry and cleaning *sigh*

The first sketch was on Beate's site, Fresh & Fun: (WSC61)

The second sketch was found on Taylors site, Taylored Expressions: (TECC37)

This third sketch was found at Poetic Artistry, where Julee shares a sketch weekly on Monday: (MOJO56)

And the 4th and final sketch was from Card Positioning Systems, where my friend Tami shares these amazingly awesome sketches each week: (CPS86) - Note: I turned this one because I wanted to end up with two tall cards and two short cards.

Stamps: Pumpkin Riley (Hanna Stamps), Family Flexible Phrases (SU!), Canvas (SU!) Paper: Ruby Red (SU!), Only Orange (SU!), Really Rust (SU!), Very Vanilla (SU!), Chocolate Chip (SU!) Ink: Onyx Black Versafine, Timber Brown Staz On Accessories: Chocolate Gingham ribbon, sewing machine, brown thread, dimensionals, prima leaves, nestabilities (scalloped and plain circles), clear embossing powder, sponges, paper piercing tool, circle plastic canvas.

Off to make dinner, have a lovely Thursday night and don't forget to watch (or at the very least record) Grey's Anatomy!!! Oh and have you seen this giveaway on Websters Pages blog? It is pretty cool -- love this new collection of papers! Hope you have a chance to go enter and check it out!!!

These are SO cute! I love how you used the same Riley - but each card turned out so different!

I <3 Grey's Anatomy too!
