Freshly Made Sketches 62

Wednesday, November 21, 2012

Wow, Wednesday.  Thanksgiving Eve, as it were, to my U.S. friends.  I hope you've got the turkey defrosted because tomorrow I'll bet there's a hungry crowd in your future lining up with forks in hand ready, willing, and able to put away tremendous amounts of food!  But that's tomorrow and today we've got a new sketch for you at Freshly Made Sketches.

This week I am the hostess and I put together a sketch that I thought would be fun to show off layers of patterned paper, ribbon, cardstock or whatever else your imagination can conjure up!




I've been leaning towards a more rustic Christmas theme this year with my cards so I've continued that here with a Crumb Cake card base paired with some burlap ribbon.  I really wanted to participate in the CAS silver and gold challenge at The Paper Players so I cut a couple of snowflakes from the Snow Flurry Bigz die out of the gorgeous Champagne Glimmer Paper.  For a little extra shimmer I twined some gold cord around the burlap.  The sentiment is from More Merry Messages and to add some color I added a red Glimmer Brad in the center of the snowflake and a small strip of Cherry Cobbler cardstock.

The super-fantastic and always amazing Freshly Made Sketches design team has put together some great cards for you to see so head on over there and check them out.  I hope you can join us this week!
