Cards of the Month Peek

It's a double-play today. Being Monday, the new sketch is ready at Mojo Monday so first up is my card idea for that. With so many layers in the sketch, I knew I would need to use one of Stampin' Up!'s designer series paper packs to get a coordinated look.
The Jackpot series worked perfectly for this I think. The additional cardstock is basic black, very vanilla, and riding hood red (left over from last season's In Colors). The only stamping is the center image and I used Staz On for a crisp print.

The card was a little plain so I added a little Las Vegas style with the rhinestones which came from Hobby Lobby I think.
And for the second part today I have a sneak peek of September's Cards of the Month. This kit will be released on Saturday, Aug. 15th. As always, the kit will include everything to make 5 cards along with their envelopes. You can come to the local workshop or assemble the kit at home. Yes...they will have an early fall theme.
Are you ready for fall? I think it's the best season in Kansas. What is your favorite season?
Thanks for stopping by.

Hey, Eugene! Haven't heard from you for awhile. I would imagine your fall is much prettier than ours with all those trees!!

Been lurking, Tasha, and have to agree the fall trees in CT can be on fire with color. Like the golden wheat fields of Kansas! Lol.
Cool cardin',
