The sketch this week is from Mischief Maker Karin Akesdotter of Peppermint Patty's Papercraft blog! I feel like I totally CASED Karin with this one. I saw this card on her blog a while back and even went so far as to print it out to CASE and today is the day! In fact, it might just be the card that the sketch is based on! It's a gorgeous tropical beauty. The glittery frame reminds me of sparkly sand. If I stare at it long enough maybe I can escape to some island paradise!! Well here's my take .... my Indiana reality - a fall wonderland!!!
I inked up the leaves from "Blessed by You" and stamped them in alternating colors on patterned paper. I cut a circle in the center to make a window, then cut out the circle doily with a circle in the center of that for a frame. Inside the window I stamped the pretty willow tree on kraft. This one is so pretty it doesn't need a bow or anything else!
I hope this card puts you in the mood for fall and Thanksgiving! Have a beautiful day and make something! I can't wait to see it!!
