Freshly Made Sketches 225

Wednesday, February 24, 2016

Hello, hello!  This week I am the hostess at Freshly Made Sketches and I've got squares on my mind!  Of course, you don't necessarily need to use squares, any shape is just fine.  As long as we can see the sketch in your card it's all good!



I never know quite what to do with my own sketch.  Weird, huh?  I added some texture with embossing paste, some faux texture by sponging through a stencil then added some pretty pink leaves dotted with blue.  The first version of the card was sans button, but it looked a little plain so I added that with some baker's twine to jazz things up a bit.  My colors come from the inspiration photo at Fusion.


Well, as you can imagine the Freshly Made Sketches design team has cooked up some fantastic cards this week.  Pop on over to see how they interpreted the sketch.  No ordinary squares for those gals!

Thanks for stopping by!

Sweet card! Love the colors with the accent of black! Thanks for the great sketch.....even though I messed it up! That's what I get for watching a movie and making a card at the same time!
