Give Thanks, Sugar Bowl Challenge 23 Judy's Sketch

Yesterday Peggy and I along with another sister and my daughter went to Boston for a huge holiday craft fair. It was great and I didn't come home with anymore snowmen(though I really wanted to buy some cute ones I saw). I did get some great things though and everyone had a really great day. As soon as I got home I wanted to do some creating after seeing all the wonderful items people were selling that were beautiful. There sure are many talented people in this world.

I did this card for the Sugar Nellie Sugar Bowl Challenge 23, Judy's Sketch. The extra that is included with it is to make it a thankful card. This is the last Fall Sugar Nellie stamp that I have not used yet so I figured it was a perfect fit for the sketch and theme of the challenge. I used lots of DP on it because of the colors. I like the earthy colors all mixed with the different patterns like polka dots and stripes, KWIM? I thought the card needed a little something more so I went with the Fall theme and punch out leaves in the DP that I used and added them around the card. The polka dotted DP is new from a company called Poppy Stamps. The paper comes in a 6x6 pack and it is all polka dots in earthy colors, they are just beautiful. If you love dots you should keep youe eyes out for this wonderful paper!

Stamps: Sugar Nellie, SU (saying)
Paper: SU CS Choc. Chip, Always Artichoke, Papertrey White, DP Basic Grey, PoppyStamps Polka Dot DP
Inks: Copics, SU Bashful Blue, Memento Black and Cocoa
Accessories: Nesties, Cloudmaker, MS Branch Punch, EK Success Leaf Punch, Recollections Sticker Pearls, Michaels Ribbon

I hope this card inspired you to do a Sugar Nellie challenge or just creat a wonderful Fall card of your own. Thank for stopping by and for all the wonderful comments that you leave about my cards.

Enjoy this beautiful Fall day,
