Freshly Made Sketches 393

Hello!  Today we've got a brand new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches to play along with!  Our hostess this week is Lee Ann and I love her sketch!  It's got classic lines that are perfect for many different designs.



After I made this card I realized that I put the sentiment in the wrong place!  The worst part about this is that I print out the graphic for the sketch so that I can follow it when I'm actually making the card.  I think I was so focused on the horizontal layers that I assumed the sentiment was to go on one of them.  It wasn't until I had this done that I realized I made a major miscalculation!  Forgive me Lee Ann!

I chose blues to color these blooms so that I could join the Color My Heart Color Dare challenge then I picked light, medium, dark tones to play along with Just Us Girls.  Whew!



Thanks for stopping by!  My Freshly Made Sketches teammates have made some fantastic cards with this sketch so I hope you check them out and are inspired to join us!

I can't tell you how many times I have messed up a sketch when I've printed it out to follow as well! But your card is lovely anyway. Love the blue tones. Thanks for playing with Just Us Girls!

I love everything about this card, Jen! You can try to distract me by claiming the sentiment is in the wrong place, but I think it's right where it needed to be. Love these blues!

Such a fresh and pretty card! I especially like that you left some of the flowers without color. So peaceful. Thank you for joining in at Color Dare Challenge #347.

Great stamp...love your choice of blues to enhance the floral and great interpretation of the sketch, and the sentiment is placed beautifully. Thanks for sharing with us at ColorMyHeart Color Dare and hope to see you in future challenges.
