Freshly Made Sketches 178

Wednesday, March 18, 2015

Happy Wednesday everyone.  I hope you all survived the St. Patrick's Day festivities, if you had them!  St. Patrick's Day is a big deal where I live.  There's parades, and parties, and corned beef & cabbage dinners, and drinking, and singing and even a breakfast where local politicians get together and pretend they like each other for a day!  It's all in good fun!

Today we've got a new sketch for you at Freshly Made Sketches designed by Narelle.  She's got such an eye for color and design and she always tries to make a sketch for us that's a little easy on the layers.  I'm sure it kills her to do it, though!


I whipped out my favorite Super Girl for my card and the little ka-pow bubble behind her is pointy like the banner in the sketch and also round-ish like the circle, so it's doing double duty here.  I actually began this card with a bright yellow layer that I embossed with clear paste using a starry stencil.  But I couldn't figure out where to put the sentiment.  Then I found this starburst paper in my stash and knew it was a better choice for a background.

The colors for my card are inspired by the colorful creation that is the inspiration this week at the Muse Challenge.  I started with the bright yellow background then pulled in several other colors as well.


There's lots of fantastic inspiration from your friends at Freshly Made Sketches.  I hope you have time to play along with us this week!  Thanks for stopping by!
