Corn Harvest Basket

Hello everyone!

Today I’m playing along in the Freshly Made Sketches challenge using products kindly sent to me by Penny Black.

When I saw the sketch, I thought about the Basket Builder set (30-856) as I thought a basket would work perfectly with the sketch. I stamped the basket and corn images, coloured them and then cut them with the coordinating dies (51-715).

Now for the circle element…. As I mentioned yesterday, I’m on a mission to reduce my dependency on blue/aqua backgrounds. Fortunately this morning, the was the most amazing sunrise, the sky was stunning, dominated by pinks and oranges – and that served as my inspiration! I blended some distress ink across my card base and then cut a circle from a separate piece of card using a die from the Stitched Circles set (51-551) before adhering it to my card base. I then added my corn basket and a few die cut wheatsheaves from the Autumn Decor set (51-653).

To complete my card, I added a sentiment from the Autumn is Calling set (30-863). The sentiment is actually much bigger and says ‘Have a lovely Fall filled with Blessings) so I just stamped the first part as I felt that would tie in well with the sentiment strip in the sketch.

Thanks for stopping by!
