Freshly Made Sketches 188

Wednesday, May 27, 2015

TGIW!  Is that even a thing?  It is for me because Wednesday is when there's a brand new challenge at Freshly Made Sketches!  This week Karren is our hostess and she's given us a sketch that I'm pretty sure you will love.  When I saw it I immediately thought of a shaker card.


That big old square was perfect for my bouncing sequins!  So that it wouldn't look so bare I stamped a little grungy image in the background then loaded up the sequins.  A little flower and some soft yellow leaves and I was done!  The colors come from the inspiration week photo at Just Us Girls.


As you can expect there are some great cards to be seen at Freshly Made Sketches so make sure you check them out.  I hope to see you in the gallery!  Thanks for stopping by!

Stamps:  Summer Silhouettes, Thank You Kindly (SU); So 80's (WPlus9)

Every time I see the bits and bobs of Baja Breeze in my scrapbox, I think of you. This is gorgeous, Jen. Absolutely gorgeous. That sweet flower with the yellow leaves...brilliant! And the most perfect sequin mix too! Love this card! Utterly gorgeous. Bev

I never even saw a shaker in the sketch - doh! But you totally nailed it! Such a pretty color combo and the grunge stamp is the perfect touch.

I'm jealous of your shaker - my sequins (like Linda's) were no-where to be found when I went to take a photo. This is one lovely card Jen!
