Freshly Made Sktetches #542

Hi friends!  It's Wednesday so that means we've got a great new sketch for you at Freshly Made Sketches.  My brain is obviously fried because I completely forgot to schedule my blog post for this morning when the sketch went live.  But here I finally am.  Our design this week is courtesy of Kim and it's got classic lines that I love.

I'm not sure why but whenever I reach for this particular stamp set I always want to stamp the leaves in black.  No idea why.  They could easily be green - the logical choice, after all - but I always seem to gravitate toward black.  So when I chose a favorite yellow gingham for the horizontal layer I knew this set with its black leaves would be perfect.  The contrast of yellow and black is a favorite of mine!  I added a bit of color by coloring the flower in shades of pale purple.  A simple sentiment finishes this off perfectly.

Thanks for stopping by!  My Freshly Made Sketches teammates have some fabulous cards to share with you so I hope you check them out.  I hope you'll join us in the gallery!

What a pretty card Jen! That flower is fabulous and I love the black leaves trailing out behind! The yellow gingham is too sweet!

You've created a truly lovely flower - and I really you black leaves (keep using them!). It is so sweet on the yellow gingham.
