Freshly Made Sketches 196!

Wednesday, July 22, 2015

Hello!  Today is a new sketch reveal at Freshly Made Sketches.  This week Cindy Hall is our hostess and I love her sketch!  As soon as I saw it I envisioned using some embossing paste and so that's exactly what I did!

I flipped the sketch because I'm much more comfortable in the portrait world than the landscape one!  And I went with a simple black, white and pink color palette.  The bottom portion of my card was embossed with some matte black embossing paste - I just love that stuff!  I randomly stamped some fun circular images, added a bold black sentiment and I was done.  Easy peasy!  And speaking of easy peasy, the CAS challenge this month at Happy Little Stampers is stamping so I'm pretty sure this qualifies over there as well!

Now you may have noticed that this sketch from Freshly Made Sketches is number 196.  That means we've got a pretty big milestone coming up!  That's right on August 19th we will be celebrating our 200th sketch!  Can you believe it?  And we are celebrating in style.  We've got some sponsors lined up (you'll definitely recognize the names) and with that we've got prizes.  Lots and lots of prizes.  So stay tuned and get ready to join us!
