Sophisticats - Week 9


Time for a new challenge over at Sophisticats and this week the theme has been set by Cheryl, she wants to see ribbons & buttons on your creation.

I've only got 1 ribbon & three buttons, so I think I'm ok - put it this way she hasn't told me off! Yet!

I've used my new Stampin' Up! set Trendy Trees, in three of the SU! Earth Element colours, More Mustard, Pumpkin Pie & Really Rust and have used good old Stamp a ma jig, to line them up as well as line up the tree trunks, which are stamped in Chocolate Chip. The sentiment is from the same set, also stamped in Chocolate Chip, the buttons are Earth Elements too. I've used a bit of SU! chalk around the edges of the image just to soften the white.

I've used one of my Charisma DT buddies - Vee's sketches, she has a great blog if you're ever stuck for a sketch to use and you can pop over here for a look - thanks Vee, I just needed a push in the right direction and your sketch got me going!

The papers are from a FunkyHand CD - Seasons and I'm also entering this card into the Get Funky monthly challenge, which is Autumn Woodland, along with Crafty Creations, who are looking for Thanksgiving/Gratitude cards.

Cardstock is SU! More Mustard and Whisper White, the ribbon is from my stash.

Hope you can play along with us at Sophisticats this week, we were thrilled with the number of entries we had last week & hope we can better it this week.
