The October Sketches are now up at 

This month, Authentique is featuring one of the newest 
collections, Peaceful.  Peaceful is the perfect adjective for the
winter-themed cardstock papers and stickers.  It reminds me of
a fresh snowfall and a late day's winter sky...peaceful indeed!

Below we have this month's card & layout sketch.  I've chosen
to go the card route again this time around :)

I think this feathered friend is just beautiful!  I just him from one of the papers, distressed
the edge a bit and then embellished with a soft velvet ric-rak.  After punching the
snowflakes from one of the Peaceful papers, I glittered each one, attached to the
card front with foam dots and lastly tied on a large button.

 If you have some time and would like to participate in the
October Sketch Challenge, please do!
There is a prize-pack involved to a lucky winner :)
