Molly Throughout the Year

Happy Wednesday friends! For those of you in the U.S. I hope you weren't up too late watching the election coverage last night. Try as I might, I succumbed to sleep early on - just can't do the late nights anymore! So we have a new term for the President today and a new sketch at Sweet Sketch Wednesday! And we welcome StampFairy back as our sponsor this week.

This sketch is one of our monthly blast from the past sketches - a favorite of the team brought back from week 109 back in July 2011. Quick and easy to go together but with wonderful results.

Just for fun, here's my card when we originally debuted this sketch to give you a little added inspiration!

Our wonderful sponsor this week is StampFairy and we all love the sweet, whimsical characters that Gerda creates there. The Grand Prize Winner of the Sweet Sketch Wednesday challenge this week will receive a $10 gift certificate to the StampFairy online store. A very generous prize and our thanks to Gerda for supporting us.

I chose this sweet Molly Throughout the Year image from StampFairy to create my card. The collection includes images of Molly for each month and this one is for November. The tree stump is one of the accessories in the collection. First colored with Copics, I cut out Molly and popped her up on the stump for some dimension on the main panel. The papers are from my stash - Bella Blvd's Family Tree.

I created my own embellishment punched out from the background paper in several layers so it would combine beautifully with the card. I love the tree background paper and the colors they bring together.

So there you have it - a fun autumn card to kick off November here at Sweet Sketch Wednesday. Take a stroll over to the blog and see the other wonderful creations from the design Divas using StampFairy images. You'll love what you see there!

Thanks for stopping by!
