Hello and Happy Saturday,
Welcome to another fun and exciting week at Mark's Finest Papers and Speedy the Cat's Friends challenge http://marksfinestpapers.blogspot.com.
This week's challenge is brought to us by Linda who challenges us NOT to use designer paper. Now, you can use plain paper, or your can make your own designer paper, whichever you choose. Use your imagination and show us your gorgeous work!
For my card I chose to use Mark's Finest papers new release Country Thanksgiving and Split Coast Stampers sketch challenge this week as well. I chose dark rose color for the base of my card and accented it with brown and white. I colored my image using my prisma colored pencils and brushed the edges with Close to Cocoa so that the white wasn't so stark. I also chose to use Mark's Finest Papers brown with pink polka dots on my card.
On the inside of my card I mounted white cardstock and then put my sentiment in there. Here you can also see how beautiful this ribbon really is, and as I have mentioned before I am not one for completing the inside of my cards. I hope you enjoyed my card. Thanks for stopping by and commenting.
I hope everyone enjoys this weeks challenge! We all look forward to seeing your wonderful creations and commenting on your beautiful cards. You have until 3pm on Friday October 14th to post your card. Remember, if you use any of Mark's Finest Paper stamps your name is entered into the drawing twice!!! Have fun and good luck.
Make sure to stop by SpeedyTV on Monday for the newest challenge and what the design team has in store for you not to mention our monthly blog hop that starts on Tuesday. Lots of fun this month stay tuned.
Have a blessed day.
