Beauty in Bloom a Funday Friday Challenge

Hi you all :) I love Fridays! It's a crafting day for me... Today I have a card that I made for the sketch challenge over at Jo's Scrap Shack. Our sponsor this week is STAMPART DESIGNS and I chose this wonderful Autumn Wagon digital stamp from her collection for my card today:
and here is the sketch:
 My rendition is just a bit different than the sketch but it's there :) I chose to do a 6 x 6 cardbase of CTMH kraft cardstock and used the orange polka dot paper from my current counterfeit kit for the background.
Sorry about the picture the orange dotted background paper is a bit washed out from this morning's sun. Isn't this just a beautiful digital stamp :) I colored it with my Spectrum Noir markers, added the 2 triangles to look like it was holding the doily onto the card and added some sequins  that matched the color of the lettering on the sticker I have at the bottom of the card. The doily was one I had gotten at the flea market at Penns Caves when we were there for the tractor show.
With the digital stamp you also get these extra words to use with your card. I have punched out one and added it to the opposing corner of the card:
I punched it out with my SU scallop punch and popped it up with foam tape added a gold sequin to it. To the inside:
I added 2 more word files and cut that with my creative memories circle cutter, backed it with the orange polka dot paper and then another doily from that cool find :) added some sequins and now it's ready to make somebody's day a bit more brighter.
I have to thank Kathryne from StampArt Design for sponsoring the challenge and please check out the link to her store and see all the great designs she has for sale.

  1. You are really skilled with those markers! It's beautiful

  2. This card is stunning! I LOVE this beautiful wagon image. Kathryne has the most gorgeous images in her shop! Your take on the sketch is awesome and I love your coloring!

  3. Your coloring was beautifully done!

  4. Tina, this is an adorable digi and really evokes Fall with the wheelbarrow & sunflower imagery. You've colored it beautifully, and I LOVE those papers you added. The white pop of the doily against the orange tones was such a pretty contrast. A terrific card. TFS

  5. This card is just beautiful Tina! I love the fall scene with the wheelbarrow, pumpkins and cute sunflower. You colored your sun so nicely too, but it is the inside quote that I just adore! Hugs, Brenda
