This week DRS Designs is the sponsor at Just Inspirational Challenges Blogspot. The challenge is "Wishes." This gives plenty of room for creativity! I created a Thanksgiving card for my son and daughter in law using this week's sketch challenge at Splitcoast Stampers.

I started by covering a piece of water color CS with red, orange, green and yellow gelatos, then I blended them with a baby wipe While waiting for this to dry, I created the rest of my card. The pumpkin CS was dry embossed with a SB leaf folder, then layered on some brown CS. Opposite corners were punched on these panels as well as the cream card base. The leafy ribbon was attached at an angle to go with the sketch design. The sentiment was stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa ink on cream CS and layered on brown after punching the corners. The leaves were stamped with the same Memento ink onto the gelato colored paper. After fussy cutting, they were attached with glue dots. I really like the look of the leaves. Gelatos work great for this.

DRS Designs' challenge this week is to use half. I used just half of an image.

I started by stamping the sentiment in Memento Black ink on So Saffron CS, then embossed it with the CB pumpkin folder. After layering this on a burnt orange CS, a ribbon was added. The image was stamped and colored with Copics. Some shimmer and sparkle were added with a Sakura Gelly roll pen. After cutting the image in half, I layered it on the same orange CS that was die cut with a nestie.
