7 Kids College Fund Challenge #4 - A Sketch by Suzanne

For the 7 Kids College Fund Challenge  this week, Suzanne Dean challenged us to use her sketch to make a fall card. Here is Suzanne's sketch...


...and here is my fall card...


You can find the following items at 7 Kids College Fund:


I colored my image using Distress Ink. I made my frame with multiple punched leaves glued to an oval.


Once again, I did not have flowers the exact color I was looking for, so I used my Copics Airbrush System to color white flowers with fall colors.
  
Have you seen the X-Press It Paper & Tape *NEW* from Copics. It is available at 7 Kids. It is the hot item right now. I don't have mine yet, but hear it is the best card stock out there for blending Copics. I can't wait to try it.

I hope you will join our challenge at 7 Kids College Fund Challenge (don't forget to use a stamp that 7 Kids carries), and go get your X-Press It Paper & Tape while it is still in stock.
