Freshly Made Sketches 322

Happy Wednesday!  It's time for a new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches.  This week our sketch is brought to you by Cécile and it is simplicity at it's finest!  Let your imagination be your guide!

I made another Valentine!  I think it's because the color challenge at Cupcake Inspiration inspired my theme.  I liked the idea of a bit of black accenting the cream and pink and I thought it would make an interesting Valentine.  My card actually ended up being a postcard.  I made this card over the course of two days.  My only task on Day 2 was to stamp the sentiment.  Well, I wasn't paying very good attention because this top-fold card was bottoms up when I stamped the sentiment so it would have opened bottom side up.  Oops!  No problem, though.  I cut the card along the fold and I'll attach it to another card base - there are no mistakes in staming, right!!??!!

Thanks for stopping by!  And don't forget to check out the inspiration from our always-amazing design team at Freshly Made Sketches.  I hope to see you in our gallery!

  1. I suspect that you're not the only one who has done the upside down stamping thing...Ahem...alright, alright, I'll confess... upside down, and I've stamped things on the back side of cards too, lol!! Great fix tho! This is a great Valentine. I love this color combination and how you've still kept it CAS. Pink. Sigh. Something just right about that color! (Even though Parisian Breeze is pretty darn amazing, too, lol!) Bev

  2. I love the black frame on this shaker card! A perfect Valentine. And I hate it when I make that same mistake as you did -- why does it usually happen when you're almost finished?!?

  3. Pink with black is fabulous! Love this! And Yep.....mistakes when you are almost finished drive me crazy! Glad there was a fix for this one!

  4. I like the classic pink and black, this is delightful Jen! Oh my gosh, I've made that same "non-mistake" too many times!!

  5. What a gorgeous Valentine! I love that shaker box! Those sequins are so pretty! This just makes me smile!!!

  6. Wow.. this is beautiful! Loved the way you incorporated the Colors and a sketch. Thankyou for joining us at Cupcake Inspiration Challenges. Hugs, Ishani.

  7. The black frame makes everything pop on this gorgeous card, Jen! I'm so glad you were able to save this beauty!

  8. You are so mistakes in stamping! I love your take on our color theme this week, the scattered sequins are a nice effect! Thanks so much for sharing this with us at Cupcake Inspirations! Wendy DT

  9. No need to say that YOUR imagination is a fabulous guide. Your card is simplicity at its finest! Just brilliant, Jen!
