Autumn Greetings/Raise The Bar Guest Spot

Good Morning Everyone! Hope everyone's ready for a great weekend. Today I'm in the spotlight at Raise The Bar. Joni was kind enough to pick me for one of the guest designers for Challenge #32. It's a great sketch. As soon as I opened the email of the sketch this big flower flashed before my eyes and I was able to go right to my studio and start pulling supplies to get started on my card. It's so much fun when ideas and supplies all fall into place right away and then when you have finished your card or project and you can say, "Wow, that's just how I envisioned it."
I hope you will all hop over to Raise The Bar this week and join in on the challenge. There are so many great possibilities with this sketch and we'd love to see what you all come up with. The rest of the design team have come up with some great cards so be sure to visit their blogs and leave them some love and I'll bet you get some inspiration if you don't already have an idea percolating. Ahh, time for that first morning cuppa and get going on your entries.
I'm also going to enter this in the Just For Fun Challenge #25-The colors are orange, olive, rust. Kind of just perfect, huh?
Be sure to check back later this evening we'll be drawing for the blog candy that I posted earlier in the week. The right answer to the puzzle was that I updated my profile picture with my new short haircut.

Supplies: Cream Card Blank 5" X 6 1/2" The Paper Studio, Papers: We R Memory Keepers, Stampin Up-Basic Grey, Old Olive, Stamps: Making Memories-Flowers, Inkadinkado-98549 Autumn Foliage, Ink: Stampin Up-Cajun Craze, Stampin Up-1 1/4" circle punch, Prima Flowers, Brads unknown, ribbon unknown, Copper sewing thread and sewing machine, glue dots. 

Thanks for viewing,
Beverly G ♥
