Freshly Made Sketches 107

Wednesday, October 9, 2013

Hello and welcome to Wednesday and a new sketch from Freshly Made Sketches.  This week Jen Timko has created an uber CAS design for you and I can hardly wait to see all the gallery submissions.

I had a thousand ideas running around my head for this sketch, but then the mailman delivered a new sunflower die to me and I knew with certainty that this would make a perfect image for my card.

I didn't really have any stamps that properly duplicated the leaves from a sunflower so I used the images from Gently Falling.  I think they look ok.  And if you are wondering what the yellow cardstock is I'm happy to say that it is Marigold Morning, one of the colors from the first In Color groups at Stampin' Up!  I've got quite a bit of it in my stash so it is now my go-to color for sunflowers!

Thanks so much for stopping by and please make sure you head on over to Freshly Made Sketches to check out the fantastic DT creations PLUS all week long the most amazing cards find their way into our gallery.  You do not want to miss it!

Stamps:  Gently Falling (SU); Sweet Treats (Verve)
Paper:  Chocolate Chip, Marigold Morning, Whisper White (SU)
Ink:  Ripe Avocado (Papertrey Ink); Versamark
Accessories:  Maize embossing powder (SU); Sunflower Die-namics, Pierced Square STAX (My Favorite Things)
