This week’s Freshly Made Sketches layout is courtesy of the wonderfully talented Narelle Farrugia.  This is a fun one and the design team has already come up with some great interpretations of the sketch!!

I altered the sketch a little but I tried to hold onto the circle element by using the wreath stamp.  I pulled out one of my very favorite Christmas stamps ever for this one, Bright Hopes.  I thought the design on the wreath coordinated nicely with the Lacy Brocade Embossing Folder so I used that to add some texture to the Cherry Cobbler panel.  I purposely embossed it the “short way” and left little blank panels across the top and bottom as a place for embellishment.  And what better for embellishment than lots of pearls??!!  You may already know but this is Ann Schach’s last week with us as a Guest Designer.  I thought it appropriate to channel Ann a little on this card.  Her cards prove that there is NOTHING that can’t be made better with the addition of pearls!!!  I took another of her hallmarks and rolled up the ends of my sentiment panels to add another layer of texture.  Finally, the little bow…  It is a fork bow made with Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding.  I have this tutorial from last year that shows you exactly how to do it.

I hope that you all enjoy this sketch as much as I did.  Can’t wait to see the gallery again this week!!  Hope your day is going well.  Thanks so much for stopping by!
