Freshly Made Sketches 235!

Wednesday, May 4, 2016

It's my turn to be the hostess at Freshly Made Sketches this week and my sketch is a bit clean and simple.  Of course, you can dress it up or down however you want!

I love big sentiments, both stamps and dies, and thought it would be fun to use that theme on the sketch.  The flower is from Altenew and I think it is just a wee bit too big for this layout.  But it is so beautiful the way it layers together and always looks fantastic that I decided to go with it.  I used the colors from Fab Friday (with the addition of some black on the flowers and leaves).

Well that's it for me!  The ladies at Freshly Made Sketches have got some beautiful cards to show you this week so be sure to check them out.  I hope to see you in the gallery this week!

Thanks for stopping by!

Stamps:  Layered Lily (Altenew)
Paper:  White (Spectrum Noir); Hello Honey, Soft Sky, Lost Lagoon (SU)
Ink:  Soft Sky, Lost Lagoon, Crumb Cake (SU); Black Tie (Ranger)
Accessories:  Snowfall embossing folder (Tim Holtz); Hand Lettered Thanks die (WPlus9)

I love, love big sentiments and I love your sketch! So much so that I made three cards with it. Such a shame the first two were duds :) Your card, however, is certainly no dud! Gorgeous!
