Freshly Made Sketches 116

Wednesday, December 11, 2013

This week Narelle is our hostess at Freshly Made Sketches and she's designed a fantastic layout that includes the ever-popular flags!


As you can see I took the flags and translated them to strips of washi tape.  Then I added a simple rectangular layer and embellished it with a pretty layered flower that I think looks a bit like a poinsettia.  The simple sentiment is one I think we could all wish for.  The colors of my card are inspired by the Fusion challenge that is resurrecting in January!  Yay!



The Freshly Made Sketches design team have out done themselves this week with their cards so be sure you head over there to check them out.  I know it's a busy time of year but I hope you can join us in the gallery!

Supplies:
Stamps:  Christmas Carols (CAS-ual Fridays Stamps)
Paper:  Crumb Cake, Real Red, Whisper White (SU)
Ink:  Real Red, Chocolate Chip (SU)
Accessories:  4 Petal Set die (CAS-ual Fridays Stamps); Pierced Rectangle STAX (My Favorite Things); Basic Rhinestones (SU); washi tape

I don't know which I love the most -- the washi tape, the fonts on the sentiment, or the little flowers. Oh, I just love it all!
