Freshly Made Sketches 70

Wednesday, January 23, 2013

Welcome to Wednesday and another fantastic sketch from your friends at Freshly Made Sketches!  This week Rita has designed the sketch and it's a classic with so many possibilities!



Now, you may think that I stamped this cute image and sentiment for a special occasion.  But you would be wrong.  Unless you count making a card as a special occasion!  I stamped the image to use on another project then ended up changing my mind about that project.  So this poor girl was languishing on my table in the craft cave when I suddenly realized that it would look awfully cute as the focal point on a card made with this sketch.

I paper pieced her dress from a piece of Real Red DSP from a Christmas set called Christmas Cocoa.  Nothing makes me happier than to use up some of my DSP and there are extra points if I use holiday paper for something that has nothing to do with that holiday!

And in a shocking display of my psychic abilities I made this card on Saturday, well before the "drink" challenge was revealed at CASology.  But since this party-girl is holding a glass of bubbly, I'm going to enter my card over there!

There are some wonderful cards for you to see from the design team over at Freshly Made Sketches.  So be sure to head on over there to check them out.  Then get busy with those stamps and join us in the gallery!

How did you know what I was thinking?! ;) I was hoping you'd share the occasion for this one when I saw it, so it's funny that you start off with that. I just LOVE that image and your fun take on the sketch. The strip of red embossed dots is just perfect with all that lovely white space.

Jen, She is just such a cute image, it's hard to believe she was sitting idly in your room...guess she was just waiting for the perfect sketch to come along. Love your take on the sketch and the phrase you paired with her.
