So glad to have you join me again today for the latest challenge from Freshly Made Sketches! I am excited to share this sketch by our awesome guest designer Linda Suarez from Lucky Dog Stamper. This is her first sketch and I know you will have a fun time with all the possibilities!
So I had all kinds of ideas running through my head for this sketch but I finally settle on a big bow for the center shape. I pulled out the oh so awesome Tea for Two DSP again (I know, I just can’t seem to stop using it). I love the newsprint design and thought it would work well against the blue pattern. I had this lace ribbon from the new Artisan Embellishments Kit out on my table from another project and realized that it was a great pop of color for the diagonal. Now when I was visualizing this sketch, I thought that two sections of the Tea Lace Doilies would be perfect for the other elements. I realized that the lower doily is kind of covered by the bow after everything was glued together. Sooooo….hopefully this will pass for the sketch! You’ll have to let me know what you think. The bow was created from the GORGEOUS new Basic Gray/Basic Black 1-1/4″ Two Toned Ribbon. I cinched it up with a Vintage Faceted Button and some Linen Thread. Finally I stamped the little sentiment from Tiny Tags onto the center part that was left from cutting apart the doily and punched it with the Jewelry Tag Punch. I like that the paper is a bit more sheer. To attach the bow to the card, I used Crystal Effects. I know it is intended to make things glossy but it also acts as a really strong glue that dries pretty fast. Cool!
Ok, the team has made some fun things this week. Such different styles! I know that means the gallery will be exciting to watch so make sure you play along.
I’ll be back tomorrow with some more information about fun new products from Stampin’ Up. Until then, I hope you have a great day!

I think the lace doilies are a perfect accent with that gorgeous bow! And the vintage faceted button makes everything look so elegant!
This is gorgeous, Jen! I love the soft and vintage feel of the card. You have combined so many elements (ribbon, doily, DSP, embellies) so perfectly!
This is beautiful Jen! Love all that texture! Such a great vintage look! Shabby/chic? Love it regardless! That bow is beautiful! Can’t wait to get my hands on that artisan kit!
