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)

Fall Time Cocoa

Happy Saturday sweet friends!   It's time for a new sketch with a spin at The Sweet Stop.  The beautiful colors of fall abound as it is the peak of the season for the changing leaves, so the spin is to create a fall time card or project.  Of course with the spin comes a PRIZE...a $15 gift certificate to the Sweet 'n Sassy Store!  Hope you can play along and help fill the gallery with pretty fall colors and themes!

It has been a while since I have colored a Cocoa image, so I had to bring out Fall Time Cocoa for my card sample for this week.
Creative Nugget:  The background panels were created by stitching Authentique   patterned papers to Early Espresso card stock with a Scalloped Border Die separating the two patterns. These were mounted to a Vintage Cream card base.  The doily was perfect for the large circle on the sketch and was tinted with some distress inks.  The DP circle layer was cut with a Classic Circle Nestie, and the Cocoa image, colored with Copic Markers, was cut with an Oval Nestie.  A button tied with jute was added along with the sentiment.  There was a Mini Mister filled with distress ink laying on my desk, so I thought I would give my card a few splatters.  I groaned as the spray came out MUCH heavier than I intended, but I was not about to start there you have it!  A few pearls were added just because!

The Sugar Babies have some fabulous inspiration for you this week.  Check them out and be sure to leave a little love behind.

Thanks for visiting my blog again today Cathy - it's always a joy to read your comments!
I think the spray was a happy accident, as it added a touch of whimsy to this lovely card. Hugs, Ann
