Wow – it’s October already!  The start of the month means we have a new hostess at CAS Colours & SketchesEmily has come up with some great challenge ideas for us, and we hope you’ll join us for the fun and creativity!

The first challenge of the month is a color challenge, and Emily has picked some great colors for the fall season.  I was able to combine them with the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches.  I die cut a wreath from kraft cardstock and used that as the base for the other two colors.  I stamped the flowers and leaves and used re-inker with water to color them.  I added some Wink of Stella to the small flowers to give them a little sparkle before I fussy cut all the flowers and leaves.  I used a piece of green seam binding for the wider horizontal element of the sketch.  Since The Paper Players has a theme of “Autumn Florals” this week, my card fits into their challenge, too.
