A House of Cards

October Afternoon's Thursday Sketch

Hey everyone!  Long time, no see.  I was out of town for a bit, and it took me a little while to get back into the swing of things once I returned.  But I am back now, and I have some projects to share.

I created a sketch for the October Afternoon blog's Thursday sketch post recently, and I made two cards to using the sketch as inspiration.

Here is the sketch:

The first card I made for the sketch uses the Sasparilla collection. 

Since I created cards for this sketch, I adjusted it a bit to fit my project.  I used the word and phrase stickers along with the card and die-cuts in place of the squares. 

I  just love the blues and greens in this collection along with the wood grain paper.  Gorgeous!

For my second card, I used the Sidewalks collection along with some of the new Washi Tape from the 9 to 5 and some leaf stickers from Fly a Kite. 

I used the sun, banner sentiment, flowers, and petals in place of the squares in the sketch and came up with this fun and colorful. 

Sidewalks is definitely a collection I am drawn back to again and again.  I NEED to stockpile that yellow gingham paper.  It is definitely a fave!

So it you get a chance to pull out your OA goodies and play along with the sketch, don't forget to post your project in the OA Flickr group.  We always love to see what you are working on using OA products!

I hope you enjoyed today's projects.  I will be back again this week to share more.  Thanks so much for stopping by.
