Beautiful Blues & Yellows - Stampin' Up! Beautiful Autumn - Fab Friday 195

Fab Friday is back with a fun sketch challenge this time around.  Look at that big panel!!  So many things you can do with it!

  I paired the sketch with my own personal challenge to my local stampers.  I gave them the card on page 121 of the Annual Catalog as an inspiration.  My stampers could take the colors, layout or floral images as their starting point. I decided to used the colors as my inspiration and thought my new Beautiful Autumn stamp set would be fun to try out.

  The Beautiful Autumn stamp set is bundled with the Autumn Punch pack but I decided to just use the images in this set that don't have a matching punch to see what I could come up with. 

  I started with a Misty Moonlight card base.  I created my own DSP for the large sketch panel using Misty Moonlight in full strength and stamped off once, Bumblebee in full strength and stamped off once and finally Seaside Spray.

  I edged the 2 sides of the DSP panel with trimmed bits of the new Square Vellum doilies (page 153 Anual catalog in case you missed them!).

 The sentiment is embossed in white onto Misty Moonlight and I highlighted the end of it with 2 stamped leaf stalks in Bumblebee which I fussy cut and popped on dimensionals.  I added a tiny linen thread bow to the stems for a final detail.

  Check out the rest of the Fab Friday Design Team for more inspiration on this great sketch challenge!

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?
