Since I couldn't play in the cc yesterday, I used those colors for today's sc. I just bought a new sb die and had to use it! I stamped and colored my image with ink pads and a blender pen. I sponged around it while still in the die and added some faux brads. I didn't have the right color brads so I created them by punching out two, adhering them together and then using crystal effects on top. Roxie taught us that! The dp's have sponging on the edges. I ran the cs through the big shot square lattice ef and added the sentiment. I also ran my cajun marker around the edges of both die cuts. Thanks for looking and take time to smile at someone, you may have just made their day! ~Roberta

Love how you flipped this to go sideways! We used the same die today but with totally different styles of cards....I like your water coloring and how you sponged the bg near the truck. And great job on the faux brads! Terrific use of those colors,too!

Roberta, a SUPER card to combine both challenges. I REALLY like the sketch in the horizontal position(in fact, like it better) Your truck with its load of pumpkins is such a great fall image....which you have colored beautifully. Wonderful EF to give a "burlap-y" texture.

Oh isn't fun using new toys, Roberta? I love that SU set, altho' I don't have it. Your sponging and watercloring is fantastic, and your background embossing adds such warmth and depth. Terrific job on combining both challenges. Great fall card :)
