Freshly Made Sketches 302

Wednesday, August 23, 2017

This week at Freshly Made Sketches Cécile is our hostess.  She has this amazing way of selecting the best die cut shapes then layering them in such a way that you are immediately smitten with her style.  I tried to channel my inner Cécile with my card this week - using some dies from a French store that, I believe, is one of her favorites.  The enabling continues at Freshly Made Sketches!

For the big circle I slathered on some embossing paste using a circular stencil then I layered on a triangle (which is actually a Christmas tree), and some floral shapes to represent the star on the sketch.  The colors for this card come from the newest challenge at Global Design Project.

Well, how clever are you to use French dies on our French sketch this week (should we rename to Frenchly Made Sketches when Cecile is our hostess?? ha ha. Anyway, this card is so beautifully laid out and works perfectly.
