Happy middle of the week to you! It is time for another amazing sketch care of Freshly Made Sketches! This week is definitely a big one for us. It is with mixed emotions that we bid a fond farewell to Tui Nathan of Stampin-Time. I am such a fan of everything that Tui makes and have countless cards made by her on my Pin boards. But Tui has the opportunity to go to Nursing School and I cannot be more thrilled for her. Make sure you drop by and let her know how much you have appreciated the inspiration she provides every week!
I decided that this fabulous sketch was the perfect showcase for a big pattern from one of Stampin’ Up’s designer papers. But which one?? As I was looking through my papers, this print from Berry Blossoms seemed perfect. Cards like this are so fun to put together because they are so quick. I did add a couple of extra elements to give it a bit more depth. First, I thought the Calypso Coral Ruffled Ribbon would be good on the side of the panel. Then I remembered I had some brads from last year’s Sale-a-Bration to use (Sale-a-bration really is a gift that keeps on giving and this year’s promotion is still on-going). I love those little brads as flower centers! I didn’t have any particular purpose for this card so I thought it looked like an anniversary card. One that is always nice to have on hand for family.
I look forward to seeing the gallery again this week since I know it will be full of amazing cards! I hope you’ll be able to join us!
I’m so glad you stopped by today. See you again soon!

Fun card, Jen! I’m so glad you linked your blog up to the Moxie Fab World Blogroll. It will be great to stop by and say “hello” from time to time! 🙂
The brad centers is genius! Fabulous color scheme!
Great idea to use this pretty designer paper with a larger image to fill the expansive area of this sketch. The brads are the perfect embellishment for those flowers. Very nice!
Perfect …. i just love how you used that panel to showcase this glorious paper …. wow! Love the polka dots … and those brads centres enhance those pretty flowers beautifully!
I love how you used the DSP for your main image and spruced it up with brads. This is such a pretty card!
