Freshly Made Sketches #63

Just look at what we have for you over at Freshly Made Sketches this week!  Rita Wright has given us this fantastic sketch to play with and I love it!  My card came together faster than one has in quite a while.  Thanks Rita!!

I really wanted to go with a vintage style and this sketch left lots of room for interpretation.  I embossed some Core’dinations Early Espresso Card Stock with the Lacy Brocade Embossing Folder and then sanded with the Stampin’ Sanding System.  So easy, so cool looking!  Then I cut out an oval with my Ovals Die (retired) and embossed it with the Designer Frames Embossing Folder.  I sanded it too.  Love how the dots show up!  I stamped the tree from Joyous Celebrations and punched it with the Wide Oval Punch, the popped it up on a Dimensional in the frame.  The Victoria Crochet Lace and the Crumb Cake Seam Binding were attached with a little bit of Sticky Strip which holds the ruffles in place.  Finally, I attached the sentiments (individual words from the New Year’s stamp in Petite Pairs) with a little Vintage Trinkets safety pin.

I know it won’t surprise you but the design team has an amazing variety of cards over on the challenge site.  It never ceases to amaze me how different designers interpret a sketch!  Go take a peek and then join right in.  I hope you are having a great week so far.  Thanks so much for stopping in!!
