Freshly Made Sketches 93

Wednesday, July 3, 2013

This week I decided to combine Allisa's fabulous sketch from Freshly Made Sketches with the inspiration to be found at Muse.  The colors of Laurie's card just reached out and grabbed me at a time when I needed some inspiration.  I had started to make an entirely different card for this sketch, but happily scrapped it when faced with the gorgeous colors and clean lines of the Muse inspiration.



And lucky for me, a box of brand new goodies arrived in the mail Monday just in time to finish this up!  I was on vacation a week or so ago and I discovered that vacation is a great time to go Internet shopping at the dozens of online stamping retailers {insert sheepish smile here}.  This box was the last of the fun stuff I ordered so I immediately retreated to my stamp room to try some of it out!

Now, the design team at Freshly Made Sketches have got some real treats for you to see this week so hop on over there and check them out.  We sure hope you can find some time to join us in the gallery!

Supplies:
Stamps:  Truth Is (CAS-ual Fridays Stamps); Textures 1 (Florileges Design)
Accessories:  Linen Thread (SU); black sequins (Darice)
