CPS 180 Part 1

This card was made for the following sketch for Sunday's CPS sketch challenge, 180 part 1. When I looked at this sketch, I couldn't quite figure out what to do with it. But when I looked at the DT's fabulous samples, I knew what I wanted to do!

I just felt like doing a fall card, and this image from Stampin'Up was just the right size for the challenge sketch and perfect for a fall card. I haven't used this paper before although I've had it awhile. It is by Karen Foster Design. I just picked up these flowers Sunday afternoon at Michael's 4 hour 25% off your entire purchase sale. And two of the ribbons. The Flowers are Recollections and Prima. The ribbons are Michael's and Offray. The cs is DCWV. I colored the image with Prisma color pencils and Gamsol and sponged around tht image with chalk. That stark white just didn't cut it! I cut the image with Nesties circle and scallop.

That's about it. Thanks for lookin'!
