Crazy For a CPS Sketch



I loved this Card Patterns sketch and decided to combine it with this week's Crazy 4 Challenges colours because I just love brown and green with cream together :)

This Echo Park Halloween DP that I got on clearance is coming in very handy!  The flip side is very Halloweeny but this side is simply yummy and perfect for this challenge!

The natural colour palette made me immediately think of my PTI Turning A New Leaf set (love this set!) so out it came and off I went.

I stamped the large leaf image in Garden Green on cream card stock, over stamped it with French Script in Chocolate Chip and cut it out.  Wasn't in a circle mood so swapped it out for an oval instead and added a few flowers, butterflies and half pearls for a little zip to the focal panel.  Don't have and brown baker's twine (it's on my shopping list for my next LSS trip) so had to go with some hemp twine instead, and I think it worked out just fine.

Have a fabulous day and hope it includes a little stamping time :)

Eeeekk!! This is gorgeous, Marisa! Love the earthy colors, the layout...fabulous card! I see Julee has some new leaves and dies that remind me of this leaf image that I've always admired.

What a beauty! The script stamped on the leaves is beautiful, and once again you've added the perfect little details in the pearls, butterflies, and twine. Marvelous work!

Love the green and the oval was a perfect choice. I like how you've curved those half pearls up the stem. Gorgeous card, as usual.

Nance said...

Totally perfect Marisa! Can't go wrong with green, brown and vanilla in my book either. ADORE the overstamping on the leaves and your trail of butterflies and pearls. Beautiful! ((hugs))

Oh, goodness, after this past Friday you'll no longer have to cut out those leaves! I must say that your effort was well worth it, you've done a marvelous job with both the sketch and the colors. I love when the universe comes together!
