Freshly Made Sketches 224

Wednesday, February 17, 2016

I don't know about where you live, but this winter has been really strange around here weather-wise.  Over the weekend we were hit with some sort of polar vortex (don't you just love the names the weathermen come up with!) and it was 10 below zero then yesterday it was 55 degrees! Talk about crazy!

But crazy we are not over at Freshly Made Sketches where our resident pilot, Jen Timko, has cooked up a fabulous sketch for you this week.  All you fans of white space are going to love it!



I really like the colors this week at The Paper Players and the cue word at Addicted to CAS is "bloom" so I combined the two and clustered some flowers on one corner of my card.  To jazz things up I put a bit of some grungy images behind the flowers and used some washi for that teeny little layer on the right.  I like how this is all sun-shiny and bright.  Spring is only 31 days away after all so that's cause for celebration!


It's no surprise that our Freshly Made Sketches design team has created some beautiful cards with our sketch this week, so be sure to hop on over there to check them out.  We'd love for you to join us in the gallery!

Thanks for stopping by!

What a cheerful card Jen! Love the bright happy yellow accents! I'm with you on the winter weather this year. Valentine's day was bitter cold, Tuesday we were dumped on with snow and in two days it will be 50. What IS going on!?!

Jen, I think I can spot your cards in any line up. Love your arrangement and embellishments on this one. Fun Washi tape piece too. As far as the weather, my car's thermometer yesterday had the outside temp at 98 degrees for Feb 16! (southern CA) Today it's raining. Thanks for joining our color challenge at The Paper Players this week.
