Always a Good Idea

Welcome to another fabulous sketch from the Freshly Made Sketches team!  This week our hostess is one of our very capable and talented Camp Mothers - Jen Mitchell.


I decided to make a card with a coffee theme and link it up to the Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop.  As well, the colors work well with the Autumn colors theme at AAA Cards.



Autumn puts me in mind of rain, so I pulled out the adorable Rainy Day set by Newton's Nook and did some Copic coloring and paper piecing.  To further add to the autumn theme, I added a pumpking from the Fall Fox set by SugarPea Designs and a coffee cup from the Newton Loves Coffee set.  The patterned paper comes from CTMH and the ombre paper in the background has a nice, warm feel to it.  I added a bit of gray shading to the paper-pieced umbrella and called the card done!


Thanks so much for visiting!  The design team have some gorgeous cards, so head on over and check them out!
