Autumn Days


I was so excited to be asked to be July's Wicked Stamper in the Demo forum at Splitcoast. I posted some challenges there so if you are a demo I hope you will join in and post your creations. I would love to see what you make. I will share this one here, it is a sketch challenge using the new SU Autumn Days, new textured cardstock and Autumn Harvest rub ons, polka dot grosgrain ribbon.
This is my "go to" layout that is a pretty easy one and offers the
opportunity to use some of the designer series paper. The measurements for an A2 card (4 1/4" x 5 1/2") are 2 3/4" x 4" for main image, Designer Series Paper 3 1/4" square, 3 1/2" x 5 1/2" for panel directly on card base. You can add matting to each layer if desired.















This second card is for today's SCS sketch challenge. I was determined to use my Color Coach that has so long been neglected. I closed my eyes, gave it a spin and went with the color combination it landed on which was Close to Cocoa, Pixie Pink (yuk), Sage Shadow, and Barely Banana. Whisper White used for base. Circle Circus set new today from SU stamp set with brads.

These are both terrific! I love your Autumn Days card. It's so quietly elegant. And the Circle Circus card is great! I do like that color combo, but I vote Pixie Pink over Barely Banana. It has so much life to it! :-D I'll try to pop over to SCS to see what other wonderful things you've been up to.
