Freshly Made Sketches 172

Wednesday, February 4, 2015

Hello!  Hello!  It's time for a brand new sketch from Freshly Made Sketches!  This week Linda is our hostess.  Don't be scared by the big ol' heart on the sketch because you know that you can use whatever shape you want!


I knew almost right away that I wanted to use a butterfly on my card, but I got the idea to layer it over a tag while I was putting this card together.  And using embossing paste over a chevron stencil for the horizontal layer was a last minute decision too.  Originally I was going to do a little upcycling by using a textured piece of kraft paper that started out in life as a coffee cozy.  Unfortunately it wasn't wide enough so I had to come up with Plan B.  And the colors on my card are from the latest challenge at As You See It.


Thanks for stopping by.  And I hope you can join us at Freshly Made Sketches.  Hop on by to check out the cards made by our fabulous design team!
