Freshly Made Sketches #5

Look at my cool new badge!!  Yes, I have been asked to design for the new challenge, Freshly Made Sketches for the next 6 months along with the super talented Cindy Hall.  How great is that??!!  Their sketches have already been fantastic and I am really in love with the design philosophy…clean, but not necessarily simple.  I have felt that is my design style for a while and can’t believe how fortunate I am to be in the company of such a great design team!

Take a look at the great sketch we have for you this week!  I love the simplicity with lots of room to make that “any shape” panel something special.

I chose to leave it as a circle but used my Perfect Pennants Die to create an interesting border.  I seem to be fully and completely in my seasonal color changeover and Always Artichoke seems to be one of my go-to colors this fall.  I used the Paisly Petals DSP as my inspiration and cut two of the leaves out of the DSP for the focal image.  Aren’t they pretty??  I threaded some Very Vanilla 1/8″ Taffeta Ribbon through my Early Espresso button and cinched up a bow made with Alway Artichoke Seam Binding.  The sentiment is from the hostess set Precious Butterflies.

I hope you are having a fantastic week so far!  Make sure you go see the beautiful cards that the rest of the team has made…and then show us your fantastic creation too!  Thanks for stopping by today!  Hope to see you again soon!

Jen, I don’t like Always Artichoke, but you are really trying to change that. This is the second one you’ve made with it lately that I absolutely adore! The leaves are gorgeous and the strip of dsp works so perfectly with them. Beautiful job. So glad to have you have stamping with us!
