Happy Little Stampers September Sketch Challenge

September is here! Oh my head spins when I think about how quickly summer went by. I love the change of the seasons, and fall is my favorite season of all! Sunflowers and Black Eyed Susans are in full bloom in my neck of the woods, so check out this card I made for the September Sketch Challenge over at Happy Little Stampers.
Here's the sketch:

And here's my card:

I started with a white card base and a white cardstock panel cut using MFT's Blueprints #13. I stamped the flower image from Clearly Besotted Sunshine and Smiles and colored it in with my copics. The sentiment is stamped using HLS Butterfly Birthday. I then arranged three different sized rectangle dies from MFT's Stitched Rectangle Stax onto my colored panel and ran it through my die cutting machine. The panel was adhered to the card base and the cut rectangles were popped up in place using foam tape to give it dimension.
Easy Peasy!!

I hope you'll stop by the Happy Little Stampers blog to see what the other fabulous designers have up their sleeves for this months challenge
and be sure to join in on the fun!
Enjoy fall!!
Thanks for stopping by!

Blessings~ Birgit
