Freshly Made Sketches 59

Wednesday, October 31, 2012

This week at Freshly Made Sketches, Cindy has got a fantastic sketch that is perfect for layering and showing off your favorite patterned paper.



I used some retired paper called Holiday Lounge as a background to my little snowman.  Now that I'm looking at the photo of this card here, I think he looks a little lonely and I wish that I had either added a friend or some snowballs or something.  Maybe I'll go back and add a little something extra before I send this to someone.  In place of the ribbon, I wound around some baker's twine and added a Crumb Cake corduroy brad which looks surprisingly like the Sahara Sand that I used for my card base.  A happy accident, I'm sure!

Now head on over to Freshly Made Sketches and check out the cards our design team has put together to amaze and delight you!  Then ink up those stamps and get crafty with us!

Your card is absolutely adorable and speaks to my snowman loving heart.
The pattern paper along with that twine makes it pure perfection.

Jen, I just love how you used the sketch! It's so unique among all of the cards this week. Using the four square as a backdrop to the snowman is fabulous, and I love the details!
