Card Sketch Tuesday #147

Happy Tuesday! Here is sketch #147. This measures the normal A2 size.

Continuing with the fall color theme! Used quite a few ribbon and a new button technique on this card.

The sunflowers are colored with Prisma color pencils and blended with OMS. To add interest, I used a small circle punch to punch the slot out of the main panel so that I could attach my button and ribbon in that area.
The button is made from a 3/4 inch clear button, the same designer paper (cut out with a circle punch) and some crystal lacquer. I added a bit of organdy ribbon and attached it to the area.
This is a simple sketch that can be adapted for a lot of uses. You could really be creative with some designer paper on that back panel.
As you read this my DH and I are in the Hoh Rain Forest on our annual week long RV trip. We kind of left this late in the year, but the weather is forcasted to be sunny all week! Wow, did we luck out!
Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!
