Freshly Made Sketches 543

Hi all!  It's Wednesday so there's a brand new challenge for you at Freshly Made SketchesCécile is our hostess this week and, once again, her superb CAS instincts shine through on this sketch.  I humbly just try to play along and mimic her style!

I've been wanting to use mesh (drywall) tape on a card for ages.  Every time I see it used on a card, it gets elevated on my to-do list and then, invariably, I forget about it until I see it again.  (I blame menopause for my forgetfulness)!  Since I live in an older home, which occasionally crumbles, drywall tape is something useful to have on hand and I've got quite a bunch.  Well, the other day I saw this card made by my friend Judy and my love of drywall tape started all over again.  

The small square in Cecile's card was perfect for the mesh tape.  I added a silver-glimmer snowflake and a slim sentiment in a bright blue and this card was done.  Easy peasy.

Thanks for stopping by!  Our Freshly Made Sketches design team will surely inspire you to play along with us. Join us in the gallery!

I can imagine the wonderful texture in this card with the drywall tape. Such a fabulous Christmas card and elegant (hard to imagine saying that in conjunction with drywall tape, but there you go!) :)
