Today is the first day of summer here in the Northern Hemisphere and I couldn't possibly be more happy about that! Summer is my favorite season and I am really looking forward to the long, hot days and, hopefully, squeezing in a trip or two to the beach. Today is also the day where we get to see a new challenge at Freshly Made Sketches. Our hostess this week is my friend from the Southern Hemisphere, Karren. Take a look at her awesome sketch and my inspiration from it.
Just Us Girls challenge and originally I had the base of this card being yellow. But as I was experimenting with how to best add in the aqua color I realized that the card looked a whole lot better with an aqua base. The yellow I added by a few Nuvo drops. (And I'll just add that Karren, enabler extraordinaire, was the one who convinced me that I needed Nuvo drops in the first place)!
I hope you can find time to join us at Freshly Made Sketches this week. Our always-amazing design team has cooked up some beautiful cards to inspire you!
