Fun days...

TGIF my friends!

I'm wrapping up the week with a card that I've made for this week's sketch challenge over at My Favorite Things. I took some liberties with the sketch and shrank the circle elements way down so they were more embellishment than focal point. That's because I really wanted to fill most of the space with this adorable Jumping With Joy Pure Innocence and instead of jumping I have her playing in a big pile of leaves. I stamped and masked most of the leaves in a light colored ink so she would really pop against the softer, less distinct lines, then made sure to add a drop shadow in W4 to help ground her into the scene. I also used the cool new Whimsical Woodgrain background stamp and stamped it tone o n tone with some brown cardstock to stick with the whole outdoorsy, nature feel of the card. I gotta say, this was a lot of fun and it felt goo d to ink up a Pure Innocence after so long. :)

Take care and have a fab weekend!

How clever to position her in the scene the way you did. And, again, I can’t get over how gorgeous your color choices are. Such a sweet card for the fall season!
