Freshly Made Sketches #55

Posted on

Happy Friday everyone! How are we all doing today? I was in Manhattan last night to see a preview of Annie with my friend Heather. It was really good, a little different that I remember, but good. We walked a little after the play because it was such a nice night. We also drove in which makes leaving a little more pleasant.

Today’s post is for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches. This week Jen M. has given us this great sketch…

This was one of those that I knew exactly what I was going to use, I love when that happens! The base of my card is Bashful Blue Card Stock. I stamped a piece of Very Vanilla using the Snowflake Soiree Stamp Set in Bashful Blue. I then used my sponge dauber and the Platinum Shimmer Paint to “ink” up the stamps again. With my trusty Stamp-a-ma-jig I stamped over the Bashful Blue snowflakes with the Platinum Shimmer Paint. A piece of Bashful Blue is embossed with the Delicate Designs Textured Impressions Embossing Folders and adhered on the left side. The greeting is also from the Snowflake Soiree Stamp Set and is stamped in Bashful Blue. I backed it with Bashful Blue and adhered it to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Some Brushed Silver Card Stock is cut out with the Snow Flurry Bigz Die and adhered to the card with more Stampin’ Dimensionals. A Basic Jewel Rhinestone placed right in the middle gives it the last bit of sparkle. I love the colors together, they give the card a cool soft feel. I hope that you enjoyed this week’s Freshly Made Sketches Challenge card. Thank you so much for stopping by and have a great Friday! 🙂
