Happy Wednesday everyone! Today over at Freshly Made Sketches the wonderfully talented Cindy has got a fantastic sketch for you that is a perfect way to show off all that patterned paper that I know you've been hoarding! I went into my personal DSP vault and selected some retired paper called Cottage Wall for my card.
It seems like ages since I've used Old Olive, a color that I used a lot in days gone by, so that was a big motivator for me choosing this DSP. I layered the pretty paper on cardstock then decided it needed a bit of jazzing up so I stitched it with a zig-zag. I tried to channel my inner Jennifer who has an amazing knack for mixing up patterned DSP for maximum impact, but I'm not sure that I succeeded with my striped layer. I like the added ribbon and baker's twine, but now that I'm studying it I wish I added a button. Drat!
The pretty flower is from an old favorite Raining Flowers. And in a sudden burst of inspiration I decided to substitute the sentiment for a row of brads. There's just something about a row of brads that I really love and I thought they added some interesting texture.
I hope you have time to join us this week at Freshly Made Sketches. Be sure to stop by and check out the amazing samples from the design team!
