Freshly Made Sketches 80

Wednesday, April 3, 2013

Ahhh!  Wednesday brings a brand new sketch from Freshly Made Sketches!  This week the incomparable and devilishly witty Linda Callahan has designed a sketch that is wide open to interpretation.  Take a peek:



I don't mind saying that I fretted a bit about the horizontal ribbon across the top.  Nothing I tried seemed to go the way I wanted to so I ended up sticking down some washi tape.  Then I thought that looked a bit plain so I stitched a zig-zag across it which, of course, you can't see because the thread is white, and that barely shows up against a white background, and what was I thinking!!!

But I do like the colors which are courtesy of the Dynamic Duos challenge which gave us some poetic license this week to make a project using Primrose Petals and another color of our choice.  I chose Pear Pizzazz which made some lovely leaves.


Thanks so much for stopping by and don't forget to pop on over to Freshly Made Sketches to check out what the design team has created this week.  Lots of inspiration there, I tell you!

Supplies:
Stamps:  Dream Big, Hope Blooms (Verve)
Accessories:  Lorelai Leaf die, Lorelia Outline Leaf die (Poppystamps); washi tape; Certainly Celery button (SU)
