A sketch, some color and CLOUDS!

First up, my Card Positioning Systems card for this week.
 This is a fun sketch, give it a try when you have time!!!
 Sweet n' Sassy is our sponsor for this week. I picked out a set of stamps that has a few silhouette images in it and then some sentiments. I love this set! I cut that amazing oval frame with a Spellbinders Nestabilities.
 I simply stamped the image with black ink and embossed that with clear embossing powder. This piece was cut in an oval shape and sprayed with a little bit of some colored sprays.  There is also an umbrella stamp that is just the outline of the umbrella making it easy to use it on other papers.  I actually stamped my piece with a dictionary background stamp by Hero Arts.
 I also used this color combo from The Play Date Cafe.
 I pulled out some October Afternoon mini pad papers.
 The blue flower circle is cut with the Cricut and then it is matted with matching shapes in yellow and red.
And for a few photos...
 We had a top of rain this last week and the day after, the clouds were amazing. I had to capture this sky with my Hipstamatic camera on my phone. See those tiny palm trees at the bottom of this photo?

Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)

Beautiful cards, Linda! Love, love the vintage style CPS card. The pretty layered oval die cuts and the stamped silhouette is fabulous. I so love the paper pieced umbrella you added. And such a pretty use of that color combo. Really like the detailed flower in the center.
Lovely photos, too. Isn't nature amazing?
