Freshly Made Sketches 16

Wednesday, January 4, 2012

After a little holiday break, Freshly Made Sketches is back with a brand new sketch designed by Tui Nathan.  And we also welcome two new guest designers for January, Nina Forsythe and Jen Sannes.


This is one of those sketches that is timeless and completely adaptable to whatever you can imagine.  And judging by the cards made by the design team, (and I've seen them all) the possibilities are endless!

For my card, I used a base of Basic Gray, then added a layer of Kiwi Kiss cardstock and some Urban Garden designer paper.  I used my much-neglected basic gray corduroy buttons as the focal point and added a sentiment from Much Appreciated.  The ribbon across the center is some Basic Gray satin ribbon.

I hope that you have a chance to participate in our challenge this week.  For some inspiration make sure you visit the fabulous Freshly Made Sketches design team.

LOVE THIS! Actually, anything with Kiwis Kiss automatically rockets up the list to my favorites. I am still kicking myself for missing the short moment that Kiwi Kiss was available on the Clearance Rack last year. :(
