Freshly Made Sketches 83

Wednesday, April 24, 2013

This week at Freshly Made Sketches we have got a great sketch designed by Allisa.  You're going to love it because it's classic!  The layers are just the thing to show off some of your patterned paper, I think!


For my card I foraged around in my stash and found some DSP called Cottage Wall.  It's got a bold color scheme featuring Old Olive and Rich Razzleberry, although I added a bit of stamping in Lucky Limeade for some contrast.  I was surprised to see that the color difference between the Lucky Limeade ink and the Old Olive DSP is not that far apart.  At first I had an entirely different floral accent on my card, had it all posted and ready to go before I changed my mind, ripped it off and went with the layered flower you see here.  Luckily the first one came off cleanly!

Today, the design team from Freshly Made Sketches is joining in a surprise birthday blog hop for Vicki Burdick so we all made birthday cards this week.  And Lesley, is hosting a little linky party for Vicki on her blog so head on over there to see all of the well wishes for her.  You're welcome to join in!

And don't forget to head on back to Freshly Made Sketches to join us with our sketch challenge this week!  We love to see you in the gallery!

I'm a huge fan of this colour combo Jen - I just love your card. The brad is a lovely touch to the centre of your flower and I love the background stamping of the leaves - I missed buying this stamp set :(
