Freshly Made Sketches 186

Wednesday, May 13, 2015

It's time for a new sketch from Freshly Made Sketches!  This week Jen Brum is our hostess and in a strange twist she put a circle on her sketch!  If you play along with us regularly at Freshly Made Sketches you know that Jen does not like circles on her cards, so imagine our surprise when we saw this sketch!  But rest assured, if you have a fear of circles too you can substitute something else in its place!

I don't have a fear of circles but I still substituted a poinsettia!  I'm woefully behind in making Christmas cards this year so I've resolved to try and make at least one a week and for some reason this sketch put me in mind of this poinsettia die.  This, of course, lead to kraft card stock and a splash of color which seem to be my go-to choices for Christmas cards.

Our Freshly Made Sketches design team has made some real beauties this week with this sketch.  Be sure you check them out!  I hope we'll see you in the gallery this week!

Thanks for stopping by!
