CAS[E] this sketch #143

October 1st!  Oh my ... seems like this year has flown by with incredible speed!  Around my Two Acre Wood we are tearing down the bean trellises, the gardens, and the pots of annuals - which may have inspired this week's card.  Here is your sketch from Chrissy Larson:

 
This is the way I was inspired by it, and the composting - and I mean that in the very best way - we take our composting seriously 'round here!
 
Julie E. for E.H. Bohemian Garden, and
W&W Lola's Bouquet for flowers.
Inked up with Wplus9:
 Hayride, Falling for blue, Pumpkin Spice, and Last Leaf.
Avery Elle sentiment in Archival black.
 
Be sure to stop over at the CTS blog today ... my team-mates have been totally inspired - as they are each and every week!  AND we get so excited by your presence in our gallery, too!

Love those floral stamps, such cool retro shapes. Must get myself organised to enter this challenge too! Was asked today actually if we compost. I told him that we don't because we are surrounded closely by too many houses, wouldn't want to stink out the neighbourhood if we did it wrong. And we have enough trouble with flies in Summer as it is!! So no composting here but I do recycle!!!

Nora N. said...

You ROCKED this challenge with the way you used the floral stamps on this card. STUNNING design!!! I want to do this sketch now!!

Taunya Butler said...

Such a stunning, stunning card, Michele! Wish I could see your 2-acre wood for real! Maybe one day...It must be a real hive of activity right now, prepping for winter. Xx

How quickly the seasons change; the trees are beautiful with their autumn colours and the larches...oh my! Their gowns of golden needles are stunning! Your card makes me smile...such a pretty floral arrangement! Taking composting seriously warrants applause!
