Designed2Delight Artist Challenge {September}

Hey again!! Another post for me...what's that make, 3 in one day?? Wow! I am getting things done!! :)
This is my card for the Designed2Delight Artist's Challenge! The first freebie this month is this gorgeous Oak Wreath! It is free for a limited time only, so you'd better grab one HERE before it's too late! Make a card or papercraft project using this image, upload your creation to the Delightful Inspiration blog HERE by Thursday midnight, EST....and you will receive another FREE image in your email box Friday morning! And it all starts over again! Great, huh??!
It is so much fun, and I honestly LOVE checking out everyone's projects! Each person who plays along makes a unique and wonderful creation every time!
I used the current MojoMonday 155 sketch for my inspiration, and love how it turned out! It was super easy and fun!
The Double Delight Challenge this week was Autumn Colors, so that was a breeze! :)
And this image from Faith is gorgeous and so easy to work with! I love Autumn themes!

For the interior of my card, I wanted those two cute acorns to accent the sentiment panel, to bring the outside in. So I printed the 'Oak Wreath' digi out full page sized, and colored and cut them out! It's like getting two digi's free this week!! :) I love them!
Here's a close up:

So fun! I thought afterwards that I could just use photo editing software to crop the image down to the acorns and save it as an individual digi stamp. Maybe I will do that tomorrow, when I have some play time. You could do that too! :)
Thank you to everyone who has left encouraging comments here for me. I have been in a bit of a slump lately, but feel the load lightening on my shoulders. Every sweet comment made things more bright! You are all so wonderful, and I am glad to know each of you, my online friends!
Keep your fingers crossed for me Wednesday...I am going to 3 different job possibilities to put in applications and (hopefully) interviews. I will let you know how it goes!
Love, love, love, love!

  1. Love your colors Sherrie!! I really like the colors of fall and you captured them so well. The acorns are especially cute : ) My fingers are crossed - good luck on your job hunt.

  2. What a great card, Sherrie! I love how you have some leaves popped up on your image, great idea! I also like how you have the inside of your card finished, it's very pretty.

    This was my first time playing along with the designed2delight challenge and I didn't receive the free image for this week. I must have done something wrong and I wanted to ask someone, but I wasn't sure who and I saw you left a comment on my blog so I thought maybe you could help me, please?

  3. Very cute card thanks for sharing!!!

  4. Hi Sherrie... I love your beautiful Autumn card! That wood grain DP and leaves go so perfectly together. Also love that you popped up some of the leaves. Very purdy *Ü* Hope you have a wonderful Sunday tomorrow. ~Kris
