Freshly Made Sketches 119

Wednesday, January 15, 2014

I think the recent Freshly Made Sketches break has wreaked havoc on my mojo because it took me FOREVER to make my card this week.  I seem to be a bit rusty because I actually started two other cards before I stumbled across this thank you die and thought it would make a fun take on the sketch.  So I scrapped the other two cards and went with this one.  This week Cindy Lovell is our hostess and I really wanted to do her fun design justice.  Not sure if I did.

Of course using this die on my card means my sentiment is in the wrong place (again)!  I don't seem to follow directions very well :(  My little "oops" aside I can hardly wait to see all the fun interpretations of this sketch that I know will fill up the gallery at Freshly Made Sketches.  Our super design team has made some pretty fantastic cards this week so make sure you pop on over to check them out.

Thanks for stopping by!

Stamps:  Beautiful Blooms II (Papertrey Ink)
Paper:  Soft Suede, Bermuda Bay, Sahara Sand, Whisper White, Thoroughly Modern DSP (SU)
Ink:  Bermuda Bay (SU)
Accessories:  Thanks on a Line die (Simon Says Stamp); Beautiful Blooms #3 die (Papertrey Ink); Basic Pearls (SU)
