Freshly Made Sketches 333

Wednesday, April 18, 2018

Hello Wednesday!  The calendar tells me it's time for a new challenge at Freshly Made Sketches.  This week our hostess is Narelle - who is the queen of layers but does the most CAS layers I've ever seen!  Who knew layers and CAS could be used in the same sentence!  I'll tell you who - Narelle!

I decided to go in a completely different direction with my card and used no layers at all!  Yep - this is a one-layer-wonder!  On the way to making my card for the challenge I briefly considered using different images- namely gnomes - but quickly realized my idea was rubbish.  Then I spied this oldy-but-goody Dot Spot stamp set on my desk and the proverbial light bulb went off in my head.  I chose a color scheme that I love and two seconds later this card was born.  Ok, it wasn't two seconds but you get the idea - this was really easy to put together.  I think I spent more time looking for the perfect sentiment than I did on the concept!

We love it when you play along with us at Freshly Made Sketches so I hope you do.  Our always amazing design team has knocked it out of the park this week with some amazing inspiration to get you in the crafty spirit!  I hope we'll see you in the gallery!

Thanks for stopping by!
