Freshly Made Sketches 69

Wednesday, January 16, 2013

Today I'm so excited to show you our sketch this week at Freshly Made Sketches because it comes from Linda Suarez and it's her very first sketch design! 



Three of anything is a win-win in my book and as I pondered how I wanted to do justice to those three focal shapes on my card I spied some Styled Vanilla Hodgepodge Hardware in my stash and selected two small ribbon slides to use.  I threaded some black seam binding ribbon through it and used some glue dots to attach it to my triangular layers that I created from some First Edition DSP and Very Vanilla cardstock that I embossed with the Honeycomb embossing folder.  I finished it off with some layered butterflies that I created with my Beautiful Butterflies Bigz  and Beautiful Wings Embosslit dies.  

I added the sentiment from Made For You "just before I went to press with this card" and at the same time decided the butterflies looked a little forlorn so I put a wee row of Basic Pearls down the center.  Those pearls really make everything look special don't they?

Our amazing Freshly Made Sketches design team has got some fantastic cards this week to get your creative juices flowing so head on over to the FMS blog to check them out.  We love to see all the amazing creativity in the gallery each week, so I hope you'll join us!

Such a fabulous take on the sketch! The slides are perfect on that ribbon. I agree, pearls make everything better (I think Ann Schach has had a lasting influence on us all!)!

Oh yeah, commenting. I got distracted by Ryan over there. ;) LOVE your take on this sketch. Those ribbon slides as elements is just pure genius. The layered butterfly, the embossing, and the designer papers are just fabulous. Awesome, awesome, awesome card. So yeah, I like it. Ha!

This is beautiful Jen! I love it! That butterfly is so fabulous! Honeycomb and Newsprint look so great together! Might be case'ing this one my friend!!!

I LOVE your take on the sketch. That big, layered butterfly is gorgeous, and I love how you used the sliders for the other two elements so as not to compete with the butterfly. Really great card!
