Freshly Made Sketches 200th Anniversary

Hello there! I’m excited to participate in Freshly Made Sketches 200th Challenge! The design team is made up of an extraordinary group of talented card makers, providing inspiration to many week in and week out. Today’s challenge is no exception!

Freshly Made Sketches 200th AnniversarySuch a wide open sketch this week!! I changed my card up just a bit from the sketch, but it follows it generally, lol!Freshly Made Sketches 200th AnniversaryThe minute I saw this book page/newsprint paper this card popped into my mind. I knew I wanted something bright that would pop off the page and this stamp and die set sure does the trick!!

Freshly Made Sketches 200th AnniversaryI layered the flowers directly onto the base paper and then popped the flower centers up. I added some Wink of Stella to the flowers that is actually (sort of) visible in this shot!! So hard to capture the shimmer!!

Freshly Made Sketches 200th AnniversaryI added a scallop-y edge, some pretty twine, and a very clean and neat sentiment to round the card off.

Thank you for stopping by today! I would love to hear your comments if you have some!!

Wishing you joy and blessings!
