I cannot believe it has been a week since I posted. I am in the joy and pain of pre-holiday flying. I was totally fortunate in getting Thanksgiving off but to make that happen my monthly flying has been really front loaded. So…not much stamping time. But today is Freshly Made Sketches day and I simply cannot miss out on that!! And oh I cannot wait to see what this week’s gallery looks like!! The incredibly fabulous Cécile Ribon is our sketch hostess and this one is super creative!
After pondering for a bit on how to incorporate circles, I had a burst of inspiration. I just got this awesome Be Merry set from WPlus9 and it seemed just right for all the elements. So I stamped a bunch of them with Momento Black ink and then colored with my Copic Markers. This set has matching dies which make it easy to create these groups!! I thought it would be fun to use a black card base to help everything pop that much more. I added extra dimension by using, well, Dimensionals to pop some of the layers. Then I added some tiny Basic Pearls to the flower centers.
Ok, it is your turn! Run right over and check out the inspiration and then get to work so we can see your creations! Also, there is a new challenge over at The Card Concept today. I just could not get it together enough to finish my card (not enough hours home) but I want you to see all the gorgeous work for the challenge! I think you will want to play along there too (why not join the challenges??!)! Thanks so much for stopping in today. So glad you did! See you on Friday for this month’s Fancy Friday hop.
