Clearly Inspired, My Time to Craft, MMSC card challenges

Finally I got to sit & make some cards! Woo-hoo! This is for the Clearly Inspired Challenge, My Time to Craft, and Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge.

CIC: Owl and/or their habitat--I have no owl stamps. I know, WHOOOOOOOOOO doesn't have at least ONE owl stamp. This is a digi stamp & I think an owl is definitely living in this tree. ; )

My Time to Craft: Looks like Autumn

MMSC: Sketch Challenge
Stamps: Digis---scene image Harvest Bounty from Clear Dollar Stamps, words from Autumn Joy, Clear Dollar Stamps
Watercolor Crayons & Aquabrush
Buttons from Jesse James Dress It Up, Fall Collection
Glitter dots, Hobby Lobby

Dork details: You probably thought, "Wow, what a cool technique to have the brown shading around the tree!" Okay, maybe not. I realized when I was assembling the card I forgot to paint the leaves. So, I did that, but when I did, it picked up brown from the tree & smudged. The more I tried to make it better the worse it got. I decided to go with it & made the whole tree smudgy looking. I don't like it, but it is what it is! LOL!

Happy Fall Y'all!

Really pretty Lori! I love fall. My favorite part of your card is the center shape, and how you have done the sentiment and the image on the same paper. Clever! Thank you for playing the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge this week. Hope to see you again next time.
