Freshly Made Sketches 210

Wednesday, October 28, 2015

And here we are again with a new sketch from Freshly Made Sketches!  The weeks sure do fly by!  This week the supremely talented Cindy Lovell is our hostess!


I have a little confession to make.  The FMS design team likes to joke a bit because one of us doesn't like to see circles on sketches.  And a few weeks ago we learned that another of us doesn't like things that are centered.   Well in the spirit of true confessions I will say that three of something on a sketch kind of freaks me out!  I fretted for several days over this sketch because I'm never quite sure what to do with those three things.  Are they supposed to be three of the same thing?  Or three different things? Don't ask me!

I started out with an entirely different card than what you see here but with the help of the colors from Stamp Ink Paper and a little flip of the sketch, this card was born!  Whew!


The ladies from Freshly Made Sketches obviously had no trouble with this sketch as you will see when  you visit there.  I hope to see you in the gallery later!

Thanks for stopping by!

These butterflies are just gorgeous! Love the pink with the gold! And I hear you with those three squares.....I had to make them askew!

The first thing I noticed about this beautiful card, were those dies...two of my most favorites ever! Then I was drawn into those stunning butterflies. Oh. My. Goodness! They are beyond gorgeous. The hint of gold is such a great idea and a great take on that color challenge too. Fantastic card, my friend, fantastic!! Bev

Haha! Jen, I suffer the same anxiety when faced with three "things". I especially fret when it is three squares like this. Your card is beautiful!

Another wonderfully beautiful card, Jen! I love the flirty butterflies and the gorgeous color palette. I know you're going to think I'm a little weird (if you don't already!), but this card actually gives me goosebumps (in a good way)!

Amy O said...

Gorgeous, Jen! I love the little touches of gold, and those tiny scallops are perfect with the butterflies. I'm with you on sketches that have multiple focal images.
