Freshly Made Sketches 202

Wednesday, September 2, 2015

Hello and welcome to Wednesday where a new sketch is revealed at Freshly Made Sketches.  This week Amy is our hostess and she has brought us a classic sketch that she has used beautifully on her own card with her signature eclectic blend of colors.  For my part, I used only a few colors but they are pretty bright!

Last week I was running behind and didn't get my card posted for Freshly Made Sketches until Friday.  I used the colors from Color Throwdown which I've never done before since our challenges both go live on Wednesday and, obviously, I need to have my card done before that.  Well this week I remembered that the gals at Color Throwdown do a sneak peek of their colors on their Facebook page on Tuesday afternoon so I took a chance and waited until I saw those colors before I made my card!

So bright and cheery, right?  I took my cue from the floral bouquet and used a daisy die and in keeping with the white background used a bit of vellum for my banner.  I stamped the sentiment in pigment ink and heat embossed with with clear embossing powder to set it.

As usual, our always amazing Freshly Made Sketches design team has created some beauties with this sketch so be sure to stop on by and check them out.  We'd love to see you play along with us in the gallery!
