Freshly Made Sketches 258!

Wednesday, October 12, 2016

Happy Wednesday everyone!  Today we've got a new sketch for you at Freshly Made Sketches.  This week Rita is our hostess and she's got this lovely design for us.



There's a "woodland warmth" challenge going on at Sunday Stamps so I thought I would try to make an autumn-themed card and channel some of the colors.  What I discovered is that I don't have some of those shades of brown so I made do with what I had and once my card was done I immediately went shopping!  There's no sense in having "holes" in my stash's color wheel right?


We're almost halfway through October folks - have you started your Christmas cards yet?  I almost did one for today's challenge but decided to save that for tomorrow!  There's quite an assortment of themes on the Freshly Made Sketches blog so be sure to check out the DT cards.  I hope we'll see you in the gallery!

Thanks for stopping by!

I'm so glad you could fill a gap in your stamping supplies! But even without those colors, you've made a fabulous card! The splatters behind the foliage add so much interest.

Love this Jen - it totally inspired my entry this week, albeit in brighter colours. Your subtle neutrals are great though, so calming.
