Crazy 4 Thanksgiving

Happy Saturday, everyone! It's time for another challenge this week at the Crazy 4 Challenges blog. This is not only my sample for this week's C4c challenge, but it also my submission for the Weekend Sketch Challenge #101 at Beate Johns' blog. I used the acorn and the sentiment from Verve's set "Tall Oaks", and combined the images with some of the Juntos Designer Series Paper. My color combination for this warm fall card was More Mustard, Very Vanilla, Really Rust, and Always Artichoke. I used my Spellbinders' Nestabilities to create the focal and circular panels. I distressed the inside of the focal panel with a Sponge Dauber, then added some piercing with a Mat Pack and Paper Piercer.

This month our very own Vicki Garrett is bringing us the challenges each Saturday...and you will not want to miss any of them! We have had such an amazing turnout for the challenges, and I personally want to thank you for making this new challenge site a HUGE success! I have had so much fun working with amazing women of this design team, and I know you all are enjoying their fantabulous samples each week, too! I'm sure they will not disappoint this week either...so go check them out, and give them some love:
