Freshly Made Sketches 61

Wednesday, November 14, 2012

I can't believe it's Wednesday already and time for another fabulous sketch from Freshly Made Sketches.  This week Jennifer Timko designed the sketch and I've been itching to make a card for it ever since I saw it ages ago.  Once I got down to business in my stamp room I knew exactly how I wanted this to look and exactly what stamp set I was going to use.  I love when that happens!




This gorgeous image is from Christmas Blessings.  I fussy cut it (including all those curlicue stems) and I'll admit I won't be doing that again soon!  But as hard as it was, I think the look is pretty fantastic and was worth all the trouble.  I was going to add a spot of ribbon at the bottom of the white layer but decided to add a simple line of paper piercing instead.  It keeps the focus on the image, I think.

So now all that's left is for you to hop on over to Freshly Made Sketches and check out what the design team has put together for you to see.  There are so many ideas to give you loads of inspiration.  Then ink up those stamps and join us!  We can't wait to see what you create!

I absolutely love your card and all that fussy cutting. It popped right off the page when I saw it on the blog with all the other wonderful DT cards.
