WMS Blog Party!!

It's the 17th and that means it's time for a WMS Blog Party!! This month it's all about fall!!



A couple weeks ago, I made a card using a windowpane {no die, freehand} ... well, I made a template and started working on this card....


I used the template to sponge inside the squares with SU pumpkin pie and mustard. Added the sentiment and trees from WMS Teeny Trees, ribbon, jute, and "torn" ground. Background woodgrain is from WMS Way Out West stamped hapharzdly.
Since I am having a "crazy busy" week and since I "lucked out" ... I am using this for  this week's WMS sketch challenge {unless I get a chance to do another... we'll see}

Sketch by Ms. Jennifer Holmes and it's a wonderful one...




















Thanks for stopping by!! Appreciate all the sweet comments!!

Vickie, I just love the window pane idea...genius! This is a gorgeous fall creation and no need to do it over! While you're having your busy week, I'll be enjoying a week off work...sleeping in...taking it easy. I really needed some time off...time for a mental health break - lol!

Ohhh what an awesome design with this week's sketch, Vickie! Love how you used shaded squares over that woodgrain! Your sponged trees are perfectly cut...look like little embellishment stickers you would buy at the store!

Brilliant - the window frame looks super. Love the tiny trees too!

Charmaine Stack said...

Vickie, the frame idea is so clever and works well with the wood grain stamping. I like how you didn't overdo it with the wood effect, very realistic. The orange squares GLOW!

Laurie said...

Awesome card! I love the window look in the background! So pretty!

Sharron said...

Very creative! I love the woodgrain on your window and the fun orange panes! The trees look fantastic and I like the added jute trim!

Jeanne J said...

This is clean and clever. Love the bright orange "windows" that add so much interest and make the trees just pop off the page. The torn border looks fab!

Cammie said...

The trees are so vibrant with the glowing orange windows! A wonderful take on the sketch.
