Lizzie Anne Sketch!

It's my turn to host the Lizzie Anne Designs sketch challenge this week. This week I came up with a very simple sketch, with a super easy twist: BE SIMPLE!! That's right - don't overthink it, don't spend hours looking at matching papers or picking out stamps...just sit down and stamp something quick. With the holiday season coming up, I for one am pressed for time - between the handmade gifts, treat bags for DD's school, holiday cards, and my normal stuff it can get overwhelming. So my whole goal with this card was clean, quick, and easy.

My card uses stamps from Sweet and Spooky (the October 2010 Monthly Mix) as well as a sentiment from Treasured Trinkets (the September 2010 Monthly Mix). I used warm fall colors because they are my favs this week - mustard, rust, and creme. My only embellishment is the jute, which I wrapped around the awesome distressed polka dots. Quick, simple, and easy - from start to finish less than 20 minutes!

And here is the sketch:


I hope you get a chance to play along with us this week! Remember to post your creation over on the Lizzie Anne Facebook Page ~ we can't wait to see it!

Love this card. It may be simple, but it's not boring! Love the colors, very fall-like, and the jute is the perfect rustic element.
