Whimsical Wednesdays - the Diedrich Dare week 6

Happy Wednesday everybody. It's another week and another dare by the Diedrich kids. Madelynn gave us a fun sketch this week, and I decided to do a fall card, since we're right in the thick of fall here in Chicagoland. The sketch almost looked like another round card, but I don't do so well with round cards, so I just decided to round the corners instead...maybe that's cheating a bit...lol.
So, here is the sketch...

And here's my card. It's a pretty simple card - it seems I'm always preparing for classes lately - I had a stamp-a-stack class last night, so I haven't done really fancy techniques lately. But...it's done. Hope you have a wonderful autumn day Wednesday! Check out the wonderful works of the other Daredevils. Thier blogs are listed in the right hand column. Debbie isn't able to play this week, so we'll catch up with her another time.

  6. Darla, this is adorable! I wish this is how fall was happening as I look outside at my wet blown over frozen cornstalk teepee! I love the patterned paper you chose, gives a natural feel to the card... nice touch!

  7. Even though you didn't go with a round card, your card was still closer to the sketch than mine because you used the little dots. really great card
