Freshly Made Sketches 91

Wednesday, June 19, 2013

This week at Freshly Made Sketches, Cindy is our hostess and she has designed a sketch for you that leaves lots of room for your creative interpretation.  I love sketches like that!


I decided to use the great color challenge from Create With Connie and Mary for my card.  Partly because I seem to have discovered that yellow, in all its many shades, is a pretty awesome color and I really liked how it looked with Island Indigo and Early Espresso.  I'm coming to realize that yellow looks pretty fantastic with just about everything!



I've got to say that each week the gallery at Freshly Made Sketches is chock full of projects that are beautiful, inventive, and inspiring.  It seems you really like the challenges that we bring you each week and we really like seeing how you have interpreted the sketch.  So keep 'em coming!  

This week our amazing design team has got some beautiful cards to inspire you so please hop on over to check them out.  I hope to see you in the gallery this week!

Thanks for stopping by!
