Happy Wednesday!  I am here with Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #15.  The lovely and talented Cindy Hall from Pretty Impact brought us the sketch today.  I love that it is different and made me think a bit.  I tend to go towards linear things so those little tilted panels seem to add such interest!

I knew when I saw the layout that I wanted one of the snowmen from Snow Much Fun to be on the center panel.  I chose this little trouble making fellow because my boys really like him.  They love that he has a sly grin as he gets ready to start a snowball fight (much like two little boys I know).  I wanted to make him a little bit vintage but with a “clean” twist.  No distressing or sponging here.  I used the colors from Well Worn DSP as my starting place to color the snowman (Not Quite Navy, River Rock, Early Espresso).  I then chose this Not Quite Navy print for the panels and River Rock stock as a background.  It was still missing something so I added some River Rock Seam Binding.  What was that??? River Rock??  Ok, I really added some Very Vanilla Seam Binding that had been dyed River Rock.  Dying is a great solution when you only need a little of a color.  A button tied with Linen Thread and a part of a sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes punched with the Jewelry Tag Punch were the finishing touches.

I hope you like my “vintage light” version of a snowman.  Just wait until you see what the rest of the team has made.  As always, their work is so fantastic!

Thanks so much for stopping it today!  I hope your week is going well.  See you again soon!

Love this card, Jennifer. That snowman looks so cheeky and I can see why your boys love him. You definitely have showcased him beautifully and I love the button and custom dyed seam binding.

Thank you for a fun 7 weeks – I thoroughly enjoyed my time playing along with y’all at FMS and being a part of the Clean Team. I echo Lauri’s comment, you all have provided inspiration to me as well.
