Freshly Made Sketches 197

Wednesday, July 29, 2015

Happy Wednesday everyone!  Today we reveal a new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches!  This week our hostess is Jen Brum and I think you'll agree she's given us a winner!



As soon as I saw the sketch I knew that I wanted to use this vertical die.  It works so well with these long and skinny sentiments.  And since the challenge this week at Just Add Ink is to add butterflies I opted for one of those in place of the square on the sketch.

Don't forget that the countdown is on to our 200th sketch celebration at Freshly Made Sketches!  On August 19th we are celebrating in style with tons of sponsors, giveaways, and some guest designers too!  So mark your calendar and get ready to play along!


In the meantime I hope you can join us this week for this fabulous sketch challenge!  Our Freshly Made Sketches design team has rocked this as usual and you should pop on over there to check their cards out!

Thanks for stopping by!

Supplies:
Stamps:  Words of Wisdom (Verve)
Paper:  Soft Stone (Papertrey Ink); Basic Gray, Blue Bayou, Whisper White (SU)
Ink:  Blue Bayou (SU)
Accessories:  Blueprints 13 die, Vertical Greetings II die (My Favorite Things); Linen Impression plate (Papertrey Ink); Delaney Butterfly die, Cheviot Butterfly die (Poppystamps); enamel dots (My Mind's Eye)

Another great CAS design Jen! I really must try and get over this week . . . I have been so busy since coming home that I have neglected one of my most favourite and regular challenges! Thanks for the inspiration! Hazel xx
