Hiya friends! Welcome to another week of the Create with Connie & Mary Thursday Challenge. It's a sketch week at CCMC and we know how you love sketches! I think you're really going to love this one:
Cute, right? Easy-peasy and a great sketch for showing off some beautiful patterned paper as in the gorgeous new Spice Cake designer paper featured in today's card:

Oh, these colors are swoon-worthy! Soft Suede, More Mustard and Pool Party that I've combined with the Day of Gratitude set. Would you like to see some details? I inked the large medallion from Day of Gratitude in Soft Suede ink and then dabbed on Champagne Mist shimmer paint for a sparkly effect:
The Pool Party & More Mustard leaves on the main panel were highlighted with Dazzling Details and the edges were embossed with gold stampin' emboss powder:
This is such as easy technique and really gives a cool effect! Just drag the edges of cardstock on a Versamark pad, dip into embossing powder and heat set! Makes a great gilded edge, don'tcha think? And I can't let you go without a peek at the inside:
More designer paper to match--just scraps from the front--and a leaf that was rock-n-rolled in Pool Party and More Mustard. Love this sentiment from an oldie but goodie: Falling Leaves.
So, there you have it! I would love to hear what you think of today's card! Be sure to check out the rest of the design team inspiration over at Create with Connie & Mary where it's also the Holiday Edition preview period. We would love to have you join us this week and can't wait to see what you do with the sketch! If you decide to play along, please link your project at Create with Connie & Mary by Wednesday, September 14th at 12 noon (EST). Thanks for stopping by!
