Freshly Made Sketches 12

Wednesday, November 23, 2011

Today I'm very excited to share that I am the hostess this week at Freshly Made Sketches!  This is the first time I have ever designed a sketch and I sure hope that everyone likes it.

I decided to interrupt my regular programming of autumn and Christmas themed cards to bring you a card with a decidedly spring-time look.

I broke out a couple of Verve stamps for this card and layered them on some Whisper White, Pink Pirouette, and a Basic Black Scallop circle.  I had a hankering to use my crimper (why do these urges hit us out of the blue sometimes?) so I crimped some Pear Pizzazz, wrapped it with a bit of linen thread and finished it off with a button. The itty bitty sentiment is from Tiny Tags.

The design team has some amazing inspiration for you so be sure to stop by and show them some love!

Awesome sketch for this week, Jen! It is so you! Your flower on this is spectacular and the crimped layer is just the right touch (and it is funny how those things come upon us). Have a fabulous Thanksgiving!

Hi Jen

I love your card! All the layers are beautiful.
You asked me about the tag on my Snowman card, I did hand cut it out, but I also used the jewelry tag punch on the end that is on the button. Thanks for asking

Gorgeous colour palette Jen ... your pretty pink flower is so eyecatching and a definite winner taking centre stage ... I love too the crimped border and of course the pretty pop of pale pink against the striking black scalloped circle ... great work!!!
