Nacho Average Challenges


Good Monday Morning All!

I found a new challenge blog (to me) while cruising looking for sketch ideas.  It's called Nacho Average Challenges, and my card today is for their current sketch.  I really love a sketch challenge to help get card ideas going.  This was a really fun sketch, clean and simple lines but plenty of ability to jazz it up, too.  Clean and simple-my favorite kind of card.  In fact, we may be using this sketch in my next Stampin' Club night.

Here's their sketch:

Here's my take:


I have to say it almost never happens that I use just one set for a card, but the Truly Grateful stamp set from the holiday mini made that possible for this card.  I love the wood background stamp done here  in Soft Suede.  I can see it as a focal point for lots of cards to come.  I stamped the wheat bundle in Crushed Curry, and added some Sweater Weather designer series paper in Tangerine Tango.  These colors really say fall harvest don't they? Then I added a piece of Burlap ribbon for contrast before adding the flag and greeting.  A good Thanksgiving card, or even a thank you for that friend or family member you've been meaning to send a note to.

I hope today is the start to a great week for all of you!  We have only one weeknight soccer game this week, and this Sunday will be my Spooky Banner class.  Wish you all could join me.  See you tomorrow!
