Another week flying by and we have our latest sketch from Freshly Made Sketches. This week’s design is from the oh so amazing Cécile Ribon. At first, I was a little stumped and then I had some ideas… Well, the first ones were a big no but they led to me finding what I wanted to do. That is what the creative process is all about so I’m grateful for the challenge!

Weirdly, my card actually started at the back when I figured out I wanted to use this Sandie’s Garden 3D embossing folder on a black base. I thought about adding some patterned paper around the center and a sentiment but then pulled out a die set that arrived just last week. The Bold Backgrounds: Vintage Roses were in a release earlier this year but I finally just caved into getting the set. I love that these flowers can be stand alone or all together with the background. Using Concord and 9th papers (Sweet Pea and Carnation), I cut out the layers of the flowers and then inked them up with the coordinating inks along with Dragonfruit on the edges and to give depth.

To help with the sketch elements I cut leaves from the Lovely Layers: Autumn Bouquet from Parsley card stock and then inked them up a bit too. The flower centers are Buttercup paper and ink. I added a sentiment from my go-to Mini Messages set and added some green pearls from the Vintage Pearls set.

I hope you will be inspired to create with us this week. Things are getting ready to be a little bit crazy at my house for the next few weeks. The youngest is graduating high school, the oldest has an end of season regatta and mom is running around to capture all the time I can with these guys! Thanks for stopping in today. See you soon!
