Freshly Made Sketches 40

Wednesday, June 20, 2012

Today at Freshly Made Sketches the super-talented Lesley has created a great sketch.  I know you're going to love it!


I switched up the oval for this great Gina K stamp.  I stamped the image in Versamark and embossed it in black.  I just couldn't get black ink to be vibrant enough so when that happens I turn to embossing powder to save the day.  I accented the stamp with a couple of flowers punched from the Boho Blossoms punch.  The sentiment is from Itty Bitty Banners.  

For my colors this week I found the challenge at Dynamic Duos was too good to resist.  And I managed to squeeze in the dessert option of ribbon with my scrunchy black seam binding. 

Our fabulous Freshly Made Sketches design team has got some great inspiration for you so hop on over to check them out.  Then do a little creating of your own and link up your card.  We love to pop on by and see what you've done!  Here's a list of the super talented FMS design team.
