H2H Sketch76 Challenge - Cricut Art Philosophy

With Blogtoberfest underway & Creatique Candy honored to Sponsor the October 2011 H2H Month long challenges, I wanted to jump right in with the new H2H Sketch 76 challenge this week.  I have to admit this is the first sketch challenge I've ever done for a 6"x6" card.  I've had my eye on the "Dreamin" paperpack for a while, along with the gorgeous embellishments that accompany it; "Harvest Charms".   It was a lot of fun to design!  
I used our exclusive Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge to create the side panels with the zip strip border as an overlay.  I cut the border at 1" which gives a approx. 1/8" over 6" which is easy to cut down to size.  I also used 3 types of flowers for the cluster ensemble at the bottom corner.  Honestly, I couldn't of cut it any other way. :) Then I inner-weaved the mid-section with our colonial white organdy ribbon.  
Here is a photo of the Sketch, if your feeling creative and want to play along...
 Total View & Close Up of the flower clusters that I used our Create-A-Shade Pearl paint with Crystal Blue re-inker and spritz pen on the flowers to give it a pearlesque kind of look.
This is the first card that I did not incorporate any stamping on the outside as the Birdy Harvest Charm was a gorgeous focal point, plus the card can be used as an any sort of sentiment card. Then I added a dabble of pearl adhesive gems and there we have it the H2H Sketch 76 challenge card.  I encourage you to hop on over to H2H and share your sketch project creation with all our bloggy friends and check out the prize you could win this month for playing along with us.  Just click the H2H Sponsor button to the left & your there! Thanks for stamping by and I can't wait to see what inspires you.

I absolutely love your card! My Cricut envy continues to grow with every week - I will have to start saving my pennies (and maybe my nickles and dimes, too).
