CPS #186 & CTD #112

Hi folks!  Just a quick post tonight to share a card I made using the sketch at Card Positioning Systems and the Color Throwdown challenge colors.

I pulled out Fall Fest by Practicing Creativity to stamp and layer the leaves, then added the sentiment.  The sentiment looks a little fuzzy, but I tend to have that problem with PTI ink sometimes.  I also managed some machine stitching, but I'm still having issues with the tension on my machine.

Cardstock:  Stampin' Up! (Riding Hood Red), Papertrey Ink (Rustic White)
Patterned paper:  DCWV (Amber Autumn premium stack)
Stamps:  Practicing Creativity (Fall Fest)
Ink:  Papertrey Ink (Dark Chocolate, Chai tea dye), Martha Stewart (Fennel, Pumpkin), Clearsnap (Cranberry)
Tools:  Spellbinders (circle die)
Accessories:  Michaels (pearls), thread 

I hoped to finish a couple more challenges today, but a routine trip to the vet's office this morning turned into a cardiac ultrasound for my pup.  She has a slight heart murmur, but she's doing just fine!

Thanks for stopping in tonight!  I might be back with a card tomorrow if I can find some crafty time, but I will definitely have a post on Saturday that you won't want to miss, as it's the first day of Practicing Creativity sneak peeks!  Hope you'll plan to check it out!  Have a great Friday, friends.

This is gorgeous!! I LOVE how you used the sketch (this one had me stumped!) and I really love how you used the colors too! I like how you grouped the different leaves in the main focal area!

You rocked this sketch! I would have run for the hills. :-) Love how you've used the CTD colors--they look so happy together. Do hope you pup is better. Hugs.

Wow Christina! You really did ROCK this sketch. Nance is so right, I would have run for the hills too! I hope your pup is doing well!

Lovely sketch, somehow I missed that one going round, but your images work perfectly! Thanks for playing with the CTD this week!
