Freshly Made Sketches 72

Wednesday, February 6, 2013

This week at Freshly Made Sketches, we've got a great sketch from Cindy.  It's got great classic lines and a spot for any shape that tickles your fancy! 


I used the red and pink colors from Dynamic Duos but decided against the obvious Valentine suggested by the colors in favor of some funky flowers.  I found some Pretty in Pink DSP in my stash and I combined it with some embossed stripes on the bottom portion of the card.  I stamped the biggest flower in Real Red then stamped off to do the smallest one.  It's amazing to me how much stamping off dilutes the color because the smaller one looks quite pink to me.



Ok, that's it for me, but be sure to head on over to Freshly Made Sketches and check out the inspiration from the DT! 

Supplies:
Stamps:  Great Friend (SU), Funky Florals (Papertrey Ink)
Accessories:  Stripes EF (SU), Chevron Stripes Die-Namics (My Favorite Things)

Awesome card. I really like the flowers with the circle. In fact, I liked it so much it inspired my card. :-)

Really cute card! Love the zig zag, and the flower stamps! I have to tell you, you should be a writer! I happened upon your Life In A Nutshell, and was laughing, in hysterics, at your spiders, IT adventures and Dippity Do! Man, you could be a writer :)
