Freshly Made Sketches 329

Wednesday, March 21, 2018

Maybe you've heard of the adage that March "comes in like a lion and out like a lamb."  Well, that is certainly true for 2018 in my neck of the woods.  Today we've got another nor'easter bearing down on us.  I think this is the fourth or fifth this month.  (I've lost count).  And this just 21 days into March.  The good news is that it looks like we might be spared a lot of snow, but enough already.  It's been a cold and dreary month and although the calendar says "spring" the reality is anything but.  Bring on spring!

But enough about my weather woes.  It's Wednesday so there's a new sketch challenge over at Freshly Made Sketches.  This week our  sketch designer is Kim and I love her classic sketch.

My colors come from Just Us Girls and I just would like to point out that behind that chocolate banner is a layer of vellum that stretches the full width of the card.  It's hard to see in the photo but it's subtle and pretty in real life.

Thanks for stopping by!  Check out the inspiration from our always-amazing Freshly Made Sketches design team and join us in the gallery!

I always enjoy your cards Jen and this one is no exception. Glad you mentioned the vellum as it is hard to notice but bet it looks fabulous in real life! Thanks so much for being with us at Just Us Girls this week for Color week.

Nice take on that sketch and our colors! Love the big turquoise dotty circle and how you worked in the brown on the sentiment and the khaki. Thanks for playing along with us at JUGS!

This is a perfect take on the sketch Jen, and I like the colors! Pretty card! We woke up to snow this morning too, I'm so over the white stuff!

I love your big turquoise circle! And the way you pulled those colors into it is just perfect. (Still in the 60s and dry out here in Colorado!!)

This is a perfect stamp for the sketch! And I love how your matching enamel dots look like they've escaped from the stamped image. Hoping that Spring is on the way to Massachusetts!

Every time you use this Dot Spot set, I remind myself that I really should use mine! But then I forget again until the next time you use it :) This is a fabulous card and a very cool take on the sketch.
