Freshly Made Sketches 213

Wednesday, November 18, 2015

It's Wednesday so that means there's a new sketch debuting at Freshly Made Sketches.  This week Amy is our hostess and she's created a classic sketch that I'm pretty sure you will love!


That wide horizontal layer towards the bottom of the sketch made me think of my long-neglected washi tape.  I have a few that are wide widths and this red, checkered one fit what I was looking for.  I was inspired by the reindeer challenge at Merry Monday and wanted to incorporate kraft, red and brown into my card.  As I was pondering exactly how I was going to put that all together, I remembered this big sunburst stamp and figured it would look good in a warm yellow behind my leaping reindeer.


Thanks so much for stopping by and hop on over to Freshly Made Sketches to check out the cards made by my teammates.  I hope we'll see you in the gallery this week!
