And what does the Lord require of you but to do justly, and to love kindness
and mercy, and to humble yourself and walk humbly with your God? (Micah 6:8)

Sweet Peek - Rhubarb's Autumn Joys

Yea!  The weekend has rolled around again and I have two posts for you today so if you've decided to tune in, be sure to scroll down for The Sweet Stop sketch sample!

Today is day six of the Sweet Peeks over at Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps!  If you love Rhubarb, you will LOVE this new set being released next week on August 15th.  Rhubarb's Autumn Joys contains not one, not two, but three adorable fall Rhubarb images and six wonderful sentiments perfect for every autumn occasion.   

Creative Nugget:  Fall is my absolute favorite season of the year because of all the beautiful, warm colors.  The Rhubarb image on my card was colored with these warm colors using copic markers.  Don't you just love the leaves falling all around him in all of their fall splendor?  This panel was put on a scalloped oval, and then on a wonderful piece of Basic Grey's Indian Summer DP that was stitched to a piece of Select White card stock.  More pumpkins were embossed with a Sizzix embossing folder at the bottom of an orange zest panel.  The top of the embossed pumpkins was cut with a craft knife so the Rhubarb panel could be tucked behind.  Two ribbons were layered and tucked behind the pumpkins as well.  The 1/4 inch white silk ribbon was stained with a scattered straw distress ink pad.  The bow was made with the Bow-Easy.  The cute sentiment was punched out with a word window punch and popped up on  the ribbon.  If you like this sample be sure to stop over at the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Blog to see what the other talented design team members have created with Rhubarb's Autumn Joys, and then join us at The Sweet 'n Sassy Connection for all of the fun activities, full reveals,....and some exciting news on the 15th of August!

What an adorable card, Cathy. I love that embossed section in the front. I know summer isn't over yet - and I don't want it to leave too quickly, but I do love the fall!
