Here's what I whipped up with the sketch today!

Combined some yummy Basic Grey paper with Echo Park's polka dots and some neutrals, crimped the kraft panel for some "manly" texture lol, used the Birthday to You Plain Jane for my sentiment and a bit of trim with the Pennant Trim die, included a maple leaf as it is great masculine accent and I have been a bit negligent in using them this fall.

Here are a few beautiful cards I spied in the link-up this week...

Autumn's card using this wonderful verse from Scripture Medley 3 and fun pompom ribbon paired with the fun recipe paper caught my eye.

Love Petra's use of open circles and a touch of twine.  Love the faux stitching from Borderline, and her sentiment panel using Friendly Phrases (retired) on the Charming Banner dies.

Loved Vickie's take on the sketch for her Halloween themed card.  I always love seeing the pumpkins from Bountiful Harvest, and she paired them wonderfully with the scalloped image in Deco Borders.  The Starry die provided her scatter of stars.

Make sure to come back on Friday for our Week 4 sketch!
