Good morning everyone and welcome to Thursday! I hope everyone had a nice day yesterday I certainly did. I got loads of birthday wishes here on my blog and on Facebook, some really nice cards and I ate way too much cake! And it’s not over yet, it continues on Saturday with a celebration in Manhattan with my friend Kim and my cousin Tracy. 🙂
Today’s post is for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches Challenge. They’re celebrating their one year anniversary. Congratulations to all the ladies over at Freshly Made Sketches on your first year. To celebrate they are allowing you go back through all this previous sketches and pick your favorite one. I chose number seven because I thought it was different and kind of neat…
The base of my card is Crumb Cake Card Stock. I use the piece of designer series paper from the Festival of Prints Designer Series Paper Pack and I cut two pieces of Early Espresso with the Adorning Accents Edgelits Dies for each side and adhered them to the card with SNAIL. The greeting is from the Keep Calm Stamp Set and is stamped in Island Indigo. I stamped the image again in Cherry Cobbler and cut out the “and” and flagged the ends. Some Stampin’ Dimensionals adhere it to the greeting that is then mounted to a piece of Cherry Cobbler. The stamps are from the Postage Due Stamp Set, a favorite of mine, and are stamped in Cherry Cobbler, Island Indigo and Early Espresso. I then punched them out with the Postage Stamp Punch. They are also adhered to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I thought the greeting and the stamps together was neat and I love the color combination. I hope you enjoyed thie weeks Freshly Made Sketches card. Thank you for visiting and for all of you birthday wishes and comments. It definitely was a great birthday made a little better by all of you! Have an awesome day!
