Reverse Confetti Color Challenge

I missed the deadline for RC sketch challenge, so I wanted to be sure I didn't miss the color challenge.  I still managed to wait until the last minute.
The colors for the challenge were orange, gray, and dark blue.
I hope all my American friends had a Happy Thanksgiving. We enjoyed a day of relaxing and eating with family.  Love days like that!
And here's one of my blessings :)

The flower is stamped with one of the sprigs from Peaceful Wildflowers.

It's That Time Again ...

.... time for another Challenge With Friends!
Jackie challenged Lisa and me to create tags/little gift card/gift packaging
for Christmas. 
So I made some tags:
I broke out my new Reverse Confetti stamps (Bring On the Merry and So Stripey) for these.  Love them!
This one uses the poinsettia dies from PTI, and I sponged the edges with dark red ink for some contrast.
 The banner and holly dies are from PTI, and the doily die is MFT.
Colored this one with copics and the ornament is from an oldie but goodie SU set. It's still one of my favorite Christmas stamp sets! It's such a favorite that I can't even remember the name of it, lol!
 The label in the background here is PTI, and the large snowflake(it's either Cat's Pajamas or WPlus9, can't remember) is embossed with polka dots. I did some masking and selective inking to make the words work. 
As you can see, I tried to stick with a color theme so they all coordinate. And I just love So Stripey.  I need Jen to make it into a full-size set so I can cover a card front :)
Thanks for stopping by, let's go see what Jackie and Lisa made!

I kept my version of this sketch quite simple,
but you could definitely put lots of layers into it!
I stamped the strawberry slush cardstock with the denim background
from Western Backgrounds before I cut and assembled it.

Wow, I just can't believe it's already November! We took the kids and some friends trick-or-treating last night despite the monsoon, and it was still fun(ish).
Here we are at MFTWSC #148: 
I made this to give to my little guy at some point. He loves baseball (and football) and we have a family team name and mascot that he came up with :)
Thanks for stopping by!
