Artful Sentiments Copic Challenge 28 & Blog Candy

Hey, Everyone, are you glad it's Saturday? I sure am. I'm afraid I feel a little overloaded by my first week of working. But it's not a bad thing. I need to make some adjustments and will soon be in a routine, I'm sure.

This week's challenge uses some of those bold, beautiful Fall colors. They make you feel better somehow, don't they?

The layout of the card is very simple. Although you can't tell from the picture, the base card is white cs. I used Copic YR18 and a straight edge to make my dark border, then pretty much covered the whole base with two dp layers. Sorry, but I can't remember who made the dp. The image is by CC Designs & the sentiment is from SU!. I used the Curvy Rectangle Nestability to cut them out. The white satin ribbon is colored with YR18 and Y17. I believe the buttons are by Basic Grey. Copics used: R08, YR18, Y17, R05, YR16, Y11, G000

The samples on Artful Sentiments are gorgeous. We'd love for you to play along, too.

Also, if you noticed my sidebar, Chris is offering an out-of-this-world blog candy to celebrate her October birthday. Wow!

Have a blessed weekend. Hugs, Laurie

I was very naturally drawn to the colors of your card...they are very similar to the colors I had for my wedding! I LOVE THEM! Congratulations on becoming part of the SSCC DT! We're going to have so much fun together!
