Happy New Year!! I am so excited to start off the new year of Freshly Made Sketches as the sketch hostess. I knew that after all the hustle and bustle of the holidays, it would be nice for everyone to work with a basic sketch. I embellished my sketch with hearts but any shape will do.
I wanted to really focus on the new Tea for Two DSP from the Spring Catalog. The catalog goes into effect tomorrow (Jan. 3rd) so you will be able to start ordering these amazing products! I used my Beautiful Butterflies Die and my Beautiful Wings Embosslit to pop out these pretty butterflies. I love them against this So Saffron print! I embellished the big butterfly with the new 5/8″ Flower Trim (I cut off just one) and some Basic Pearls. Some retired Soft Suede Taffeta Ribbon was a perfect finishing touch. The sentiment is from Made for You…still one of my favorites of the new catalog.
I can’t wait to see your interpretation of the sketch this week. The design team has created some lovely cards and I know you will be so inspired!
I am back on reserve with United today but will be officially on a bit of a break after Friday. I have some fun new things coming up with the new year and I can’t wait to share them. Make sure you drop in next week to see the news! Until then, I’m so glad you came by today. See you soon!

Happy New Year, Jen! Lovely card, warm and elegant!
Beautiful Jen! Love that DSP – so elegant and inviting – like a tea! Might have to add that paper to my wish list!
Such fun paper…beautiful as butterflies!
Very pretty Jennifer! That DSP is gorgeous and I love that new flower trim!
I love this. What a pretty card! I like how you used the flower on the butterfly.
Gorgeous! I actually started off with butterflies but couldn’t get mine to work. I LOVE how yours turned out; I guess I should have tried harder. 🙂 Great sketch!
Those butterflies are absolutely gorgeous! And I love how you dressed them up with pearls and a pretty flower.
So very beautiful my friend! I love it! The colours are fabulous and I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the butterflies, flowers and pearls!!! Maybe you can convince the powers that be for a flight up to Toronto!!! Happy New Year!
Oh my gosh, Jennifer! This card is so beautiful. I love the papers, butterflies and perfect embellishments. It’s so romantic.
Beautiful butterflies and details on your card! Love the saffron paper in the background! So nice to see something bright and spring like! Happy New Year!
Those butterflies are gorgeous in that DSP! What a fantastic card!
Beautiful colors and textures. The flower makes such a sweet center, too. TFS!
Adorable Jen! Great Sketch too. I would love to play along if I have time this weekend!
Love the sketch, Jen. And stunning card with the butterflies and the subtle but rich colors.
Your card is like a breath of fresh spring air, with the colors you used and, of course, those gorgeous butterflies!
