Sometimes it's funny how ideas for making a card come to me. The other day I went into my stamp room to make my card for this weeks challenge at Freshly Made Sketches. I was kicking around some ideas in my head when I happened to look down and spotted a small piece burlap ribbon that I got somewhere or another. It was like a light bulb went off in my head and I knew just how I wanted my card to look!
My card base is Naturals Ivory cardstock which I hardly ever use but discovered matches the Orchard Harvest DSP quite well. I used some of the Cajun Craze patterned paper as well as the More Mustard checkered paper from that pack. I love how these colors paired with the burlap make a warm, and somewhat rustic card. I thought about putting some pretty leaves on this for my focal point, but for the second time that night I looked over and saw my long-forgotten Spice Cake buttons and realized the big More Mustard one tied with some Linen Thread would be perfect! Who would have thought that twice in one night I would be inspired by just casually looking around my stamp room! I ought to try that more often!!
I hope you have time to look around your crafting space and see what you can find. Then put it all together and join us for this sketch challenge. My friends at Freshly Made Sketches have created some wonderful cards to inspire you, so be sure to stop on by check them out!
