Freshly Made Sketches 19

Wednesday, January 25, 2012

Wednesday is, of course, Freshly Made Sketches challenge day and this week we've brought you a sketch from me!


I love making square cards and my favorite are ones that are 4 1/4-inches square.  The size is adorable and as a bonus fit in an A2 envelope.  If you live in the US, this lets you avoid the surcharge that comes from mailing a square envelope.


My card base is Chocolate Chip (a color that I feel like I've been neglecting a lot lately) and I added a layer of So Saffron and some designer paper from the Sweet Pea designer series paper pack.  The flower  and sentiment are stamped in Rose Red and the leaves are Old Olive.  I found some So Saffron brads so I added those in the lower left corner.

Our Freshly Made Sketches design team have all cooked up some amazing inspiration for you so be sure to stop by and show them some love.  Then head on back to the FMS blog and link up your creation!
