WM Sketch Challenge

Today's post is a card I did for the WM sketch challenge. The set is called Blessed by You.
This is one of my new sets so I wanted to use it in the sketch challenge. From my perspective the tree suggests something rather "colonial" so I stamped it on Kraft CS. I created my own plaid background with WM's Picnic Patterns. I'm still not sure if I like the tree stamped on that color of CS, but I'm not sure what else to go with to give it that feel, so here it is for now. I've been trying to stay on top of commenting, along with posting more frequently, but golly.....there are a lot of new posts out there today. I love the inspiration I get from so many of you. Hopefully I'll be able to keep up the momentum. I'm loving summertime and want to work up so many summer images, but I'm already feeling pressured to get to creating cards for the holidays. Oh, the demands we put on ourselves, yes?? Thanks for stopping by. Hope you're enjoying your summer days.

Hello Karen...how are you doing!!! I love your autumn card. I think the tree look good stamped on the kraft. I think it keeps with the colour tones.

ACK, this is awesome, Karen! I have yet to ink up that beautiful willow tree, and I just love how you used it here! The leaves framing the sides are so lovely. A wonderful autumn card with this week's sketch!

I really like the wide plaid background you made with the Pic-nic Patterns set. I will have to try that sometime soon.
