Happy Fall, y’all!
Wonderful sketch! I can’t believe we’re already at #300! I’m just now trying to get back in the swing of things. I was out of town for a while then came home sick. What a treat!
All images are Our Daily Bread designs. I love fall colors and making cards using them. I borrowed a Kpad to stamp these flowers while I was out of town. I also used it to brayer the bg, then used the gold ink to overstamp the brocade bg image. I used this bg for my two horizontal bands.
The first sunflower image, I cut out using the out of the box Nestie technique. The second one, I used a matching ODBD sunflowers die. I love that die! I also used it die cut a matching piece of cardboard so I could attach it to give my sunflowers a little lift.
I used the gold leafing pen to edge most layers and put it all together on an ivory 5.5 x 4.25 card.
Thanks so much for stopping by!

It’s the third Thursday of the month, so it’s time for another Divine Diva Inspiration Challenge!
Today’s challenge is a book cover Lori found. Kind of an interesting picture, don’t you think?
I went with the green frame and the blues and yellow. These potted plants reminded me of the plant in the inspiration picture. All images are DRS Designs. I stamped the plants on the shelf and watercolored them using markers and a water brush. I added some color to the background and sponged a little darker ink around the edges.
For the green background, I started with a lt green piece of card stock and sponged on several colors of green and blue ink then stamped the leafy vine border. The white background was embossed with a wood floor looking heavy plastic sheet I found in the cake baking supplies section of Michael’s. I added the greeting in the lower right of a 5.5 x 4.25 white card.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Everyone is welcome to join our challenge and if you do, please link us up. If you upload to Spitcoast, please put DDIC in your keywords.

I made this using two new sets from Our Daily Bread designs. I love the mint green and navy colors together; it’s one of my fave combos. I have a stash of papers that I hand marbled (the old fashioned, messy way, lol) and since each one is one of a kind, I make color copies of them. The background is one of those.
For the mint green layers, I stamped the Brocade bg using Versamark. It’s faint, but it’s there. For the brocade frame, I used a SAMJ to make it wider, stamped it w/ indigo ink and used markers to add a little color. It’s cut w/ a rect nestie. The quote was cut w/ a labels 4 nestie and a little green ink was sponged on the edges.
