Happy Wednesday to you! I am so happy to be here with this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge. If you are looking for the 2013 Artisan Design Team Blog Hop just click here. So yes, I will have two posts today! This sketch is from the awesome Jen Mitchell and it is a great one!
I needed a sympathy card for a very special person this week and I immediately thought of using Simply Sketched for it. This hostess set is so fantastic for so many kinds of cards. I wanted to focus on the bird so I kept the rest of the card really neutral. This wood grain from Natural Composition Specialty Paper seemed perfect. I stamped in Early Espresso ink and the added in touches of Crumb Cake with a Blender Pen. The bird is Soft Sky. I might have a new favorite blue!! The Naturals Trim ribbon kept with the tone and these new buttons matched up with the sketch really well, don’t you think? It is never good to need a card like this but it is nice to know that I have a set that makes it easier to make one.
It will be no surprise that the team at Freshly Made Sketches has made a fantastic variety of examples (again!). Make sure you go take a look and let Jen M. know how much you love this sketch!
I will be back tomorrow with more of the Artisan project hop. If you haven’t seen it yet, it is something worth visiting! The new 2013 Artisan Design Team is sharing the project they entered for the contest! Thanks for stopping in today. See you soon!
