Fall Tree

This card is made for Sunday, September 13, 2009 Day 197 - Super Sketchy Sunday. On Saturday nights before I go to sleep (you know, the time period your brain is still awake and your body isn't?) I decide what theme card I will make for the Super Sketchy Sunday challenge. Last night decided on a fall card. I had just bought some fall DP at Mikes, so I wanted to use it. This is the sketch...

And this is my take on the sketch...

And this is the inside of the card...

I always try to finish the inside when I use a dark color card base. Operative word here is TRY! Want to thank Pam for an easy sketch this week that tied in with my goal! The card base is from Textured CS Neutral from the Paper Studio. The DP is Tim Coffey Fall Gold Leaf Scroll. The tree stamp is Fall Season by Inkadinkado stamped on Very Vanilla and popped up. Ribbon and corner punch. Viola! Done!

So why did it take me 5 hours to make? Hmmm, surfing through all your blogs, looking at new techniques to do, adding more blogs to my list, eating breakfast, starting the laundry. 2 cups of coffee (didn't spill it this time!), watching TV, relaxing - well, isn't that what a day off is all about? Did I mention I'm still in my PJs? Now I'm going to get busy and cram 10 hours of work into the next 5 hours!

Have a great day and just forget that tomorrow is Monday! SAM

I love it Sam everything about it is fabulous from the designer paper which matches the swirly tree you used and can I say the tree stamp is just awesome indeed. Love the inside as well. Can you tell I love flourishes? lol

Love your card. The tree image is great.

Love it! That tree image is gorgeous - and has great movement with it's swirly branches, and your bg paper carries on that theme. I can almost hear the autumn wind whistling as it blows the leaves off... :D (and the inside is beautiful, too!)
