It's Scramble time again! Quickcard117 with LaVon

On the Hero Arts Flickr group today, LaVon posted a fun Scramble challenge to use one of three Hero Arts Sketches from 2012. I love sketches and these are three I remember fondly. I decided to use sketch # 3 and I'll tell you why in a bit. Here's my card:


I used a fun new Hero Arts clear set that just arrived in my mail yesterday - CL882 Autumn. When I first saw this set I thought it might be fun to color all the little panels on the leaves. Well, not for a Scramble - not  enough time! I'll try it sometime soon, though. The kraft card is stamped with one of Hero Arts' 6x6 bold prints cling stamps called CG671 Forest Floor - just love this stamp. I inked and stamped twice, first with Fossilized Amber and then with Antique Linen with splashes of Gathered Twigs. I used the same Distress inks for the leafy panel. The little label is from a set of three by Memory Box called Pastry Labels. The embellies are from Doodlebug.

I went with sketch 3 as it seemed the quickest. I put away all my crafty supplies due to my brother's cat coming over for a visit. Misty enjoys her "vacation" from her home on the other side of the Twin Cities! One of her favorite spots is the windowsill in my lower level family room. If the blinds are closed she will meow until I open them!! Here she is, soaking up the sun:

Well, I'd better clean up the Scramble mess before Misty gets into it! Thanks for stopping and have a great Labor Day weekend!!

Linda, this is such a gorgeous card with a great feel of autumn! Love the beautiful colours you have used and your great combination of images! The little leaf embellishment is such a sweet touch!

Great photo of Misty and I can see why it's her favourite spot with all the lovely sunshine and view of your garden:)
