Hi everyone! With all of the World Series excitement around here I'm surprised I managed to whip one together for Beate's weekend sketch challenge. I don't love this card, but I think it's because I tried to use fall/autumn colors. I'm not a huge fan of what I do with autumn colors. However, as you know I AM a huge fan of the Phillies. Oh my goodness I am just beside myself with excitement. As I type this they lead 6-2 over the Rays in the 6th inning and are well on their way to pulling ahead 3-1 in the series. Even our pitcher, Joe Blanton, just hit a home run!!! Remember this post from May? I so wish I was sitting in that same seat tonight. Or better yet, tomorrow when my favorite pitcher, Cole Hamels, takes the mound. But I digress. As far as the card goes it's pretty straightforward except for the spring moss layer. I embossed it with the Cuttlebug leaves folder and then swiped it a few times with my antique linen distress inkpad. Thanks for indulging me with my love for the Phillies. And thanks so much for stopping by!
Until next time...M
