Whew! That was quite a month we had at Freshly Made Sketches! We reached our 400th sketch with a small trip down memory lane and capped it off with a brand new sketch and prizes for some of our lucky participants! So now it's time to get back to business with a brand new sketch. This week our hostess is Cécile.
I really tried to channel my inner Cécile with my card. I so admire the way she artfully designs her cards. She always uses interesting backgrounds and unusual die cuts and each card is a masterpiece. So I tried to keep my card clean and yet still be interesting. I gold embossed some coffee rings to add a metallic touch, added some soft vellum leaves, and a bold, yet simple, birthday sentiment. I'm really pleased with how this turned out!
There are a couple of other challenge I'm playing along with too. Less is More is looking for metallics and TGIF wants us to use embossing powder. That's a match made in heaven!
Thanks for stopping by. We are well on our way to another 400 sketches at Freshly Made Sketches 😳so I hope you'll go along with us for the ride!
