Freshly Made Sketches 165

Wednesday, December 3, 2014

Oh, what a wonderful sketch we have for you this week at Freshly Made Sketches!  This week our hostess is Cindy Lovell who always makes the most amazing cards.  They're so colorful, full of details and still so fresh and clean.  Every time I visit her blog my wish list grows a bit longer!


I'm sure I seem like a broken record lately because I've been making so many Christmas cards but we're approaching D-Day in the Christmas card world and aside from a few deviations lately, Christmas cards are all I can think about.  For this card I was also inspired by the last challenge of the year from Festive Friday.  I've always loved making Christmas cards from non-traditional colors and the pinks and gold in this challenge are what drove my card today.


I don't need to tell you that the Freshly Made Sketches design team have created some beautiful cards to inspire you this week. So I hope that you'll check them out.  And I thank you for taking the time to visit me here!

Supplies:
Paper:  Soft Stone (Papertrey Ink); Regal Rose, Basic Black, Gold Foil (SU)
Accessories:  Blooming Poinsettia die (Memory Box); Wet Paint Holiday die (Papertrey Ink); Blueprints 13 die (My Favorite Things); Speckles stencil (Tim Holtz); gold embossing paste (Wendi Vecchi)

The gold embossing paste looks so good behind that cute pink poinsettia. The contrast of splatters and feminine looking flowers works so well.
