Freshly Made Sketches 230!

Wednesday, March 30, 2016

I can hardly believe that March is just about over! And yet here we are with only one more day to go and all those April showers to look forward to!  But before all that starts we've got a brand new challenge at Freshly Made Sketches and this week Jen Brum is our hostess and she's got a classic sketch for us.



I was having a wee bit of trouble deciding what to do with that little rectangle.  I tried a couple of things involving snowflakes and embossing folders and just wasn't feeling the love.  So I relied on a tried and true recipe for me:  a big die cut sentiment!

This one was cut three times in Melon Mambo and once in Night of Navy then all were glued together with the Navy one slightly offset for a bit of contrast.  I threw in a few enamel dots for fun on my giant banner and that was it!

Be sure to check out the beautiful cards my teamies have made at Freshly Made Sketches.  I hope you can join us in the gallery this week!

Supplies
Paper:  White (Spectrum Noir); Night of Navy, Melon Mambo, Ice Cream Parlor DSP (SU)
Accessories:  Jumbo Fishtail Banner die (My Favorite Things); Hello Word die (Lil' Inker Designs); enamel dots (My Mind's Eye)
