Freshly Made Sketches 13

Wednesday, November 30, 2011

Hello, and welcome to another episode of Freshly Made Sketches!  This week, the lovely and talented 

Lesley has given us a gorgeous, versatile sketch to work with.


I was getting a little worried that I hadn't made enough Christmas cards so I figured I better add to my stash just in case.


I paper pieced the poinsettias from the Deck the Halls dsp.  That's something I don't often do, but I really like the result.  Then I cut out the holly leaves and the music from the same set.  The sentiment is from Bells and Boughs.

Our wonderful design team has some great inspiration for you, so be sure to check them out.  Then head on over to Freshly Made Sketches and use the linky tool to upload your creation.  We can't wait to see what you do!

So pretty, Jen! Paper piecing scares me as I'm the worst at fussy cutting. Yours looks amazing as always. You are quite the master of clean but not so simple! :)

What a gorgeous card, Jen! Love the paper piecing you did, such a wonderful effect and it looks so masterful! Love this DSP too - I've been using up what I bought last year and I'll be sad to see the last bits of it go. :(
