Whew, I got my sketch challenge card done before the end of the month!  I was cutting it close a wee bit there.  I don't have many There She Goes sets (the company who is the sponsor this month), but I do have these wonderful fireplace building sets with additions for fall holidays.  The details are fantastic!  I chose to use the stone fireplace for my card.


I wanted a rustic feel, so I chose Ocean Tides for my card base and some coordinating muted patterns for the background strips.  The fireplace stones were colored to match.  It's a little unusual, but I really like the pop of color.  Both the fire and the clock were stamped on a separate piece of white and then cut out and glued in place.  The word "home" is actually part of a longer sentiment, but I just selectively inked the one word.  Fits perfectly!

Stamps:  Home Sweet Home, Home Sweet Home Holiday Additions (There She Goes)
Paper:  Ocean Tides, White (Papertrey Ink); Marjolaine 6x6 pad (Basic Grey)
Ink:  Tuxedo Black (Memento)
Copic:  0 Colorless, C1, T1, T4, T6, E30, E41, E42, E55, E57, E59, Y11, Y13, YR15, YR18, BG72, BG75, BG78
