Freshly Made Sketches 272!

Wednesday, January 25, 2017

It's Wednesday so that means it's time for a new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches.  This week our hostess is Cécile and if you love circles you will love her sketch!  Let's get to it.


You say circles, I say anemones!  I had forgotten all about this die that I bought a couple of months ago and stumbled on it when I was looking for something completely different.  Since the petals of the die cut flowers layer together into an approximate circular shape I thought they would be perfect for this sketch.  The bright yellow, plus the green banner, were inspired by the photo at Fusion and at The Paper Players they are looking for CAS with a flower.

I think it's a bit difficult to see in the photo but I used white embossing paste with a stencil to add a scripty texture to the background of my card.  I love how it adds a little tactile interest!


I seem to be on a birthday card kick lately but not so my Freshly Made Sketches teammates.  The cards this week feature an assortment of sentiments and styles so make sure you check them out.  I hope we'll see you in the gallery!

Thanks for stopping by!

Exquisite details, Jen! Those flowers are so lovely (love the vellum addition, too), and I love the way you added the embossing paste, white-on-white. There are so many great details and so much to look at but it is CAS at it's very best!
