Yea, it is Wednesday!! Time for a new sketch from Freshly Made Sketches! I am the sketch hostess this week and I am so excited to see what you do with this one. I tried to leave it pretty basic to make room for watercoloring, large sentiments or cool DSP. The design team has used all of these and you will love their cards!!
I thought it would the perfect place to put this large Happy Birthday from You’re Amazing. This card had an interesting evolution, I must admit. It originally started out with a So Saffron base and I had planned on using more rosettes. When I put it all together, something was missing. So naturally I added a bow!! One of LeAnne’s lovely shabby bows…I really do love these! I found that just one rosette as the center worked perfectly. Then to the color…yep, had to change that too. The So Saffron was a little too muted for my taste today so I brightened it up by changing over to Raspberry Ripple. I embossed the base layer with my Lacy Brocade Embossing Folder (which we just found out will still be available in the Spring Catalog!!). Of course the rosette needed a Basic Pearl so I added that as a finishing touch.
I would like to take the time to bid a fond farewell to Jen Sannes of Simple & Sincere. She has been a guest designer over at Freshly Made Sketches and this will be her last week with us. What amazing talent she has and it has been such fun to work with her!
You know what to do now. Run right over to the challenge site and see what the team has created. I hope you like this one and I look forward to seeing you in the gallery!
Thanks so much for stopping in today. I hope your week is fantastic!
