Happy Wednesday! This week at Freshly Made Sketches Cindy Hall is our hostess and she has designed a fun and versatile sketch. Cindy is a stamping hero of mine because not only does she create beautiful cards for ladies but also effortlessly creates jaw-droppingly fabbo cards for men! I find those in particular to be so difficult to make but she makes it looks so easy! So if ever you need some inspiration for that oh-so-difficult man-card, just pop on over to Cindy's blog and she'll fix you right up! Now on to today's card and sketch!
This is actually the second card I made for this sketch. The first one was winning the "what was I thinking award" before I came to my senses and scrapped it. Once I threw the ugly pieces out I had an epiphany and grabbed this pretty sunflower die, realizing it needed to be the focal point of my card. I had a tough time deciding how to do the horizontal layer before I got creative and used a grungy PTI stamp to simulate it. And since it's been ages since I used my favorite "math" washi tape I stuck a little bit of that down too.
Our always amazing Freshly Made Sketches design team will knock your socks off with their cards this week so be sure to head on over to check them out. I hope we'll see you in the gallery! Thanks for stopping by!
