CPS and Flourishes

This is my second post tonight. Since I had this card done I wanted to get this one posted too before my time ran out. I don't think I've every participated in the CPS Card Sketch Challenge before but this sketch really got me interested. In fact I tried several different things before deciding I really like this one.

Isn't this sketch interesting? I'm not sure where I got the striped patterned paper but I love the colors. I cut the triangles with a square Nestability and then cut it in half on the diagonal. The stamped image is from Whimsical Autumn by Carolyn King and distributed by Gina K Designs. I cut that out with a circle Nestie, embossed it and dabbed some pumpkin pie ink on. The sentiment is from Arranged With Love by Melanie Muechinger and distributed by Gina K Designs. I cut it out with Spellbinders, embossed and sponged with Pumpkin Pie. I added rhinestones to the triangular shapes.

The image was colored with Bic Mark-its and I outlined the vines with a Gold Spica pen. I tried to capture the glitter in the picture but it's much better in person. It really gives it a nice sparkly effect.

And of course this card also is for a Flourished challenge. I've done several of their challenges this week so check out my other entries below.This challenge was for a fruity birthday card. It just occurred to me that not everyone considers a pumpkin a fruit. Well I do. LOL! And I am so pleased with the results!

Thanks for stopping in again! Come back anytime.

Warm winter hugs,
