This week I came across the Fall to Layout on the clean & simple blog. I usually check out the cards on this blog but often can't find the time to try out the sketch challenge. This week was different. I tried it ended up coming up with four cards in one morning. The last card is not as "clean and simple" as the first three. So here goes....

First the sketch.

This is the first card I made. I was going to add more flowers so that it followed the sketch more closely, but I like how it turned out and didn't want to change anything.

I decided to follow the sketch to a tee and this is how it turned out. Not my favorite compared to the other three!

This one was quick!!

And finally, I decided to do my own thing on this card.
By the way, on the first and last card, I had to mask the flowers to add the leaves so that they would not overlap the flowers. Here's a little tip: Keep the masks and place them in the box along with stamps so that you can use them the next time. You don't have to make new ones every time.

Supplies used on all cards:

Stamps: Petal Pizzazz, Cheep Talk
Paper: Tempting Turquoise, Whisper White, Certainly Celery, Close to Cocoa
Ink: Tempting Turquoise, Certainly Celery, So Saffron
Accessories: Corner Rounder Punch, Tempting Turquoise 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon, Silver Brads, Paper Piercer, Mat Pack, Tombo Liquid Glue, Timeless Type Alphabet sizzlet dies, Big Shot, Embosses Curve Border Punch

All cards 4.25 x 5.5

Thanks for summer!....oops I mean "for stopping by". Obviously I am thinking of summer with the gorgeous weather we are having. Now I am going to head out to do some gardening.
