Freshly Made Sketches 276!

Wednesday, February 22, 2017

There's a brand new sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches that I'm pretty sure you are going to love.  It's designed by Amy O'Neill and it is a classic design that leaves tons of room for creative interpretation.  Let's get to it, shall we?

I just realized that the flower on my card looks sort of like the star in the sketch!  That's totally unintentional and don't worry if stars aren't your thing - if you play along you can use whatever shape or image you'd like on your project!

I love the colors featured this week at Just Us Girls.  Coincidentally, I was recently perusing some old cards I made and I came across one featuring Crumb Cake and this polka dotted paper.  I liked how it looked and was determined to use that paper again.  These two challenges were the perfect excuse to!

Our amazing-as-always design team at Freshly Made Sketches has some real jaw-droppers this week so be sure to check them out.  We hope that you are inspired to play along with us!

So glad you found the Crumb Cake paper! Yay for polka dots! Yay for your pretty starish flower, which looks so pretty against your soft neutral papers. And the black flourish looks wonderful behind it! What a fun card and what a great sketch to work from. Love this!! Bev
