Freshly Made Sketches 67

Wednesday, January 2, 2013

Happy new year and welcome to a whole new crafting year at Freshly Made Sketches!

As much as I like the Christmas season, it's nice to hang up those holiday stamps create something without a santa, snowman, or snowflake on it!  It is winter after all, so I'm sure I'm not done with snowmen or snowflakes, but I did take out a pretty flower for my card this week at Freshly Made Sketches.


The incredibly talented Jennifer Timko created this beautiful sketch for us.  It's got lots of great things that I love like layers, fun shapes, room for ribbon and lots of interpretation.  In keeping with my non-holiday theme, I layered some flowers and leaves for a thank you card.  The sentiment is from Made For You and after I put the flower together, I thought it needed a little pizzazz so I added an Antique Brad to the center.

I dug into my precious stash of Kiwi Kiss for this card and used a small strip across the bottom of the card and accented it with some Cherry Cobbler Baker's Twine.

The Freshly Made Sketches design team have made some beautiful cards this week, so be sure to stop by and check them out.  I hope you have time to join us this week!

That floral centrepiece is awesome ... the colouring is so pretty and the neutral background is the perfect backdrop!

Your flower stands out with the way your colored it. It's refreshing to see flowers after all of the Christmas cards, though I do love snowmen and flakes! lol
