At the risk of sounding super old, where exactly did this year go?!
To soften the blow, Kiwi Lane has another cute card sketch challenge up on their blog! Go HERE for all the details and enter to win!
Here is the sketch:
And here is my first sample:
The only change to the sketch on this one is the leaf in place of the flower. I did this because I desperately want it to cool off and actually BE fall already!!! Enough with the heat!

I unearthed my paints again! This time I wanted a softer, not so "distressed" look, so I made sure to hold my foam brush perpendicular to my paper edges for a smoother line.
One of my favorite things about Kiwi Lane's philosophy is that I don't have to use TONS of embellishments!!! Just fun shapes and edges that let my paper shine! All I added on this card was paint and pearl dots:
And it works perfectly! Hardly any embellishments and it still looks finished and polished. Love it!
