CHF Challenge # 4 - Sketch

It's our weekly challenge at Cornish Heritage Farms... and this week, Lesley Langdon has created a sketch to get us thinking. We often have terrific storms in the St. Louis area... one evening we had a whopper! The kids and I watched as the storm raged through, only to reveal a wonderful rainbow and a sunset of fire. I caught both in film; the sunset was so vibrant that my picture actually did this justice.

A Moment in Time:
I decided to use Lesley's Photo Op stamp set (the Rummage Bin) to create my card. It's perfect for it! At first glance, the Photo Op stamp set looks to be central for scrappers... but it's been a huge inspiration for my cardmaking.
I opted to stick with the fiery colors of the sunset and the silhouettes of the trees. A simple card for a wonderful layout.
Be sure to check out the other CHF Designers participating in the challenge for more inspiration on this sketch.
