Freshly Made Sketches 20

Wednesday, February 1, 2012

For my Freshly Made Sketches card this week I decided to go through the giant stash of designer paper I have that never seems to get any smaller.  The Thoroughly Modern paper caught my eye mainly because the combination of Rose Red and Bermuda Bay is fabulous together.

Lesley's sketch this week is long and narrow and has loads of room for interpretation!  My card measures 3 x 6 (inches).  I started with a base of Sahara Sand and then layered some Bermuda Bay with the stripey paper.  I stamped the Curly Cute sentiment directly on the Soft Suede designer paper then went over it with clear embossing powder to make it show up a little better.  I stamped the flowers in Rose Red, cut them out and layered them with dimensionals.  An antique brad finishes off the center.

This week at Freshly Made Sketches we welcome our Guest Designers Kim S. and Tracey Vidal who will be with us during the month of February.  They both are frequent players with our challenge, so it will be fun to create with them this month.  Welcome ladies!

I hope you can join us this week at Freshly Made Sketches.  We love to see what you create!

I like the colors you used, the flower is so cute and the heat embossed sentiment is perfect. Can you share the info on the flower?

Gisela - you didn't leave me a way to contact you so I hope you're reading this. The flower is from a Verve set called Great Friend.
