Freshly Made Sketches 160

Wednesday, October 29, 2014

Happy Wednesday!  It's time for a brand new sketch from Freshly Made Sketches.  This week our sketch is designed by Rita and I'm pretty sure you're going to love it!  It's got a big ol' banner on it and I love banners!  This is also my last week guesting over at Colour Me...!  They really put together some gorgeous color combos and this week there are two palettes to choose from.



I chose to use the second color combo.  It's got Chocolate Chip in it and I really love that color.  It's been ages since I've used it so I dove right in to my supply of cardstock and even used a little ink too.  I love how it looks with Lost Lagoon and although pink isn't really my thing, I think both colors look pretty with the Blushing Bride.

The little butterfly seems a little weird on my card considering it's fall and butterflies seem better suited for spring and summer.  But I love using them on my cards and these colors reminded me of spring so there you go.  They're kind of timeless, don't you think?

Thanks for stopping by here and don't forget to check out the challenges at Freshly Made Sketches and Colour Me...!  Both design teams have totally rocked their cards!

Stamps:  So 80s (WPlus9); Many Thanks (Simon Says Stamp)
Paper:  Classic White (Flourishes); Chocolate Chip, Lost Lagoon, Blushing Bride, Whisper White (SU)

Love your card Jen - there's so much detail in the main circle despite it being a CAS card. Great use of this week's colours. It's been great to have you guesting on the Colour Me...! team this month; pop by and say hi some time. Right, I'm off to look at an FMS entry!

I think you should be allowed to use butterflies all year long. And this is one gorgeous butterfly.

So beautiful Jen - you always manage to make combing colours just work! Me I struggle with anything more than one colour and a neutral!
