Freshly Made Sketches 89

Wednesday, June 5, 2013

I've got to admit that I let out a little "squeeeeeee" when I saw this awesome sketch by Rita for Freshly Made Sketches.  Sometimes a sketch just grabs me and makes me say yay!  This is one of those sketches.



First of all I love square cards so that was a given that I would love this card.  But add in the rectangle that offers so manly possibilities and the fun little flags peeking from the bottom of the rectangle and I was in heaven.  I realized pretty soon after I saw the yellow challenge at Catered Crop that these two challenges would be perfect for each other.


I don't often use yellow, but Catered Crop story board was so bright and inspiring that I wanted to see if I could make something with yellow that I was happy with.  I used kraft and black to add some neutrals to the brightness and I love how these colors all look together.

The Freshly Made Sketches design team have got some great cards to inspire you this week so hop on over there to check them out.  Then join us in the gallery, because we love to see you there!

Thanks for stopping by!

Supplies:

Thank you for your warm comments on my TAWS Tags...I'm trying to 'stretch' with new techniques, but sometimes the going is slow! You've definitely added motivation with your encouragement!
